When deciding to add a new plant-based yarn to our offerings 100% Pima Cotton is the obvious choice. Its softness, strength, and shine are perfect for both warmer weather and those in between times where you just need a little something. Knitting year round with Malabrigo yarns just got a little bit cooler!
Great for: Accessories, garments, baby and kids items, housewares, toys, cables, textured stitches, color-work.
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
When Malabrigo dyes their yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns. (Please note: Variegated colors no longer have assigned dye lots)
Skeins are hand dyed in small batches of 5 so color variance is normal (even from skein to skein) *Based on dye lot and monitor/device settings skeins may not appear exactly as shown.
