Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre which grows in an boll around the seeds of the cotton plant and is almost pure cellulose. Cotton yarn is incredibly popular and can be used for almost all kinds of handmade projects ranging from summer garments to crocheted cup cakes. Cotton fibre is weaker than silk and linen, but is more durable than wool.
Mercerized cotton is cotton that has undergone the process of mercerization. Mercerization adds luster and strength to the fibre while at the same time imparting a greater affinity for dye and making the yarn more hardwearing. This process also adds shape stability for garments and reduces propensity to shrinkage compared to regular cotton.
The many characteristics of cotton yarn
Cotton yarn has countless advantages. If you work with 100 % cotton fibre, you will be sure to get a soft end result, that feels very comfortable against the skin. If the weather is cold and grey, the cotton will keep you warm, which is why it is great for crocheting or knitting shawls, ponchos, tops, etc. Not only is cotton excellent by it self, it is also a great team player. It can be mixed with silk, linen or wool depending on which look you are going for. When you mix cotton yarn with other types of yarn, you will get a very durable and dirt resistant end result.
As you may have picked up on by now, cotton yarn can be used for many different projects - it is simply a great choice for most projects.

What our customers say about Cotton Yarn
I’m not a knitter nor do I crochet! I’m a weaver and always on the look out for natural yarns in a wide variety of colours. I stumbled across Hobbii and fell in love with the 8/8 cotton yarn - what a beautiful array of colours, it was hard to stick to my original palette. Fantastically quick service, I hardlyhard time to drool and be impatient! Will definitely be back for more - just don’t tell my husband!
Love this yarn! I am always in search for organic yarns and this has been the easiest one to work with so far. The best part it comes in so many colours which I find unusual for organic cotton yarns. Finally the thickness is perfect for my projects (amigurumi). So glad I found this, please never stop producing it!
Bought this yarn as a trial, was a bit concerned as you are at yr 1st buy. But no worries, lovely cotton yarn, good colours, delivery much quicker than expected. And the price was very reasonable as well. All round 10/10.
I make Octopus for Preemies and love working with this yarn. It is soft and easy to work with especially for a cotton yarn. This yarn can be washed at 60 deg which is an added bonus. The colour choices are fabulous .
