Vancouver, Washington- We love feedback from Knit Picks customers!  Since introducing Simply Cotton nearly a year ago, we’ve gotten rave reviews from knitters who love our 100% organic cotton yarn. Simply Cotton is soft and luxurious- perfect for warm climates, animal fiber sensitivities, and easy care garments. In fact, knitters like Simply Cotton so much they want more- more colors! We are only too happy to oblige.

Starting March 15th, 2010, Simply Cotton will be available in 16 juicy shades ranging from earthy neutrals to dazzling brights. It’s the same organic cotton base Knit Picks customers know and love in a whole rainbow of new hues. If you look closely, you’ll see that each colorway is delicately heathered to create luscious, complex colors with lots of depth. And of course, for organic cotton purists, Simply Cotton is still available in the four, original undyed colorways too.
