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.

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
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!
Lovely quality cotton yarn for my first crochet project! Looking forward to my next one! good price on sale. Will def order again.
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.
Oh the colours! They are like having a prism shining, in my living room! I now need to find the perfect pattern to display this gorgeous mix to its full glory. I love working with cotton and I just know by the feel of it that this is going to be a delight to work up.
Totally love this yarn! So easy to crochet with its a dream! washes really well to and keeps it shape well. I have order a few different colours now and in love with them all! I will def be buying more now you have a few new colours to choose from.
I purchased this as I absolutely fell in love with the colour way Fairytale Rainbow. It’s is happily on its way to making the most beautiful Sophie’s Universe and looks stunning. Won’t hesitate to purchase again for another big project.
Superb service- lovely product, great price, hassle free delivery. Also, the pics give a very true representation of the actual yarn colours which is a rarity when buying yarn online. Will definitely, 100% use hobbii again- thank you!
I absolutely love this yarn. It’s beautiful to work with, doesn’t split and feels soft to the touch. To be honest I’ve been using it for Amigurumi and toys and it’s quality is superb. I would definitely recommend it.
I haven't started my project yet (a baby blanket) but I love the feel of the yarn and will probably order more as the colours on offer are lovely. The service from Hobbii was great - friendly and very efficient!
