We really just cannot get enough of our fantastic Friends Cotton 8/8.

Cotton is a great, strong, durable, breathable, absorbent, and lightweight natural fiber. Friends Cotton 8/8 has no less than all these characteristics and it is made out of 8 threads spun together.

All the shades have been thoughtfully selected to create a complete range that spans from bright to pastel and darker colors.

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein.

This fiber is also easy to take care of, making Friends Cotton 8/8 so versatile that you can craft anything with it. Need some inspiration? We recommend dishcloths, pot holders, totes, and rugs for your house. It will be suitable for any kind of garment for both babies, children, and adults. And let’s not forget stuffed toys, amigurumi, and cute animals. Cotton has a great stitch definition and will work amazingly well with textured stitches.

Aren’t you already in love with Friends Cotton 8/8?

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at:

About the Friends family

The colors of the yarns included in the Friends family are literally friends!

This means the color numbers correspond to the same color across the different Friends yarns. If you order the same color number from two different Friends yarns, they will match. Please note that there can be slight differences in the shades from fiber to fiber.

Have fun combining and matching them in all your projects.

Love the colour of the lemon yellow I bought so bright. The cotton is really soft and is really nice to knit with. I'm currently making the tour de France yellow jersey with it and it's coming out so nice. I can't wait to wear it 😍🥰


I love this cotton yarn, it’s so soft and bright! I use it to make granny squares for blankets and the squares come out so vibrant and soft to touch! It’s also really sturdy and doesn’t stretch much, which is good!


Good yarn! love the colours, does not split, feels lovely on the hook! Used for amigurumi. But when I've used it alongside the Ricorumi DK I'm finding that its a lot closer to Ricorumi Aran, trying the 8/6 next.


This is a beautiful cotton yarn. I'm currently crocheting a mesh stitch summer sweater. It crochets up like a dream and drapes beautifully. I'll definitely purchase this again.


Lovely yarn. Made my mum a mesh jumper with this and was so nice to work with.
The Capri blue is such a nice colour.
