New Yarn: Cotton Pure on a ConeJuly 13, 2017 / byPurl Bee / Categories : Feeds
Our one hundred percent unmercerized Pima cotton, formerly available in hanks only, is now wound in lengths equal to more than ten skeins. Meet our Cotton Pure on a Cone!
The same soft and cuddly Cotton Pure, with its wonderfully tactile matte finish (the unmercerized part) and strong, extra-long fibers (the Pima part), now on a cone, provides enough yarn for knitting a whole blanket or sweater without joining skeins. Also perfect for weavers who love a lot of yardage!
Unmercerized cotton is naturally absorbent and machine washable. What could be better for knitting up a blanket for a toddler to drag around or a sweater for a preschooler with a penchant for mud pies?
Or hook up our Granny Stripe Blanket in Cotton Pure! Not too bulky, not too slight, it’s happy at the foot of your bed, draped over your lap on cool summer evenings, and wrapped around yourself on chilly fall mornings.
Available in a palette of soft pink, gentle grays and warm white, Cotton Pure on Cone is as beautiful as it is practical. Pick up a cone!

In her Field Guide to Birds, Carolyn Hedge Baird recommends Chain Stitch as one of only a few stitches great for outlining. I agree and I love to use and recommend it for thick outlines. There’s little problem with it if the line is straight or curvy. But what if your area has corners or […]read more
