Vancouver, WA- Here at Knit Picks, our thoughts (and needles!) are already starting to turn to warmer weather pursuits.

Cotton has always been a favorite fiber for warm weather knitting. By adding just a touch of acrylic to high grade Pima Cotton, we’ve taken traditional cotton yarn and transformed it into Comfy — a cushiony, stretchy, soft yarn that is comfortable to knit and holds its shape.

Knit Picks’ Vice-President Tina Birch explains, “We decided to add Comfy to our inventory because we wanted an easy-care, wearable for all (especially those allergic to animal fibers) worsted weight yarn that would be an excellent “workhorse” for just about any kind of project – for kids, for long-wearing casual garments, for home décor. The excellent stitch definition means this yarn can be dressed up, too, for sophisticated cabled and textured projects.”

Because it doesn’t contain any wool, it is not only an excellent choice for those with wool allergies; it’s also great for charity knits or vegan knitters. This machine washable, versatile yarn knits up fast and works well for a variety of projects from baby knits to pillow covers. At under $3 for fifty grams, why not knit a whole afghan?

Comfy is available in 12 luscious colors at http://www.knitpicks.com/P002: Lilac Mist, Honey Dew, Sea Foam, Flamingo, Crème Brulee, Cashew, Blackberry, Cypress , Planetarium, Pomegranate, Fedora, and Ivory.
