Cotton Yarn

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. In our shop, you will find a large selection of shades making it easier for you to knit or crochet your favorite project. As an example, you will find our extremely popular Cotton 8/4 Junior made of 100 % cotton fibre in an assortment of different shades at a very low price. This gives you plenty of opportunities, just let your imagination run wild.

Cotton yarn made of 100 % cotton fibre is often used for crochet or knit project for the little ones. What makes it a popular choice is the fact that it can be washed at 60 degrees. Be careful, however, when the cotton is mixed with other types of yarn, as this may change this quality.

What our customers say about Cotton Yarn

Frances Hamson

This is a lovely yarn, which although not twisted, does not easily split. I have made a shawl for a gift and the finished effect is very pretty.

Nicola McDonald

Received my yarn and I am delighted with both the quality and colours. Will definitely be ordering more and I would highly recommend this yarn. Great delivery also. Keep up the good work guys.

Janet Lowe

Beautiful yarn, very pleased with my choice and can't wait to get started on a project. Very impressed with the speed of the delivery too

Sharon

Love this yarn, long time since I knit four ply now I'm wondering why. Colours are beautiful, yarn is so soft and will definitely be buying more in the future. Only bad point I can find is that you don't have jumper patterns that use the yarn so I've adapted other pattern to suit.

Dawn Rearden

I thought that I would give this yarn a try instead of another popular brand to compare them, especially as this brand is cheaper when on offer. This yarn is slightly thicker, but not too much. It has great stitch definition, drape and my work feels lovely and soft. It is great being able to see completed projects here on the website to give an idea of how the different colours look when made up. this has encouraged me to think about choosing one that I may not have done. The only thing that I'm not keen on are the knots where the colour change happens. I found some of the colour changes a bit too abrupt instead of the gradual ones of the other brand I use a lot. It won't stop me using this brand though. Delivery was very quick.

Sonya Stone

Nice colour, quality of yarn ok yardage very poor and price not that good when I thought it was 100g balls , hope to make 10 hats and can only make 2 , probably won't be back

Janette

Best cotton wool I've used for knitting, lacey patterns stand out really nice, finished garments feel so soft and looks more expensive than ordinary wool.

Yvonne

Third of the way through knitting a shawl with 14 Mystic Opal and one strand has completely disappeared (left with a cut end) so yarn has now gone down to 3ply instead of 4ply. Not impressed

Andrea Moret

I just got my rainbow cotton 8/4 it's so soft and easy to crochet with I will be buying again from you.
