Cotton is a strong, durable, and machine-washable fiber. It’s a great vegan fiber choice to use for people with wool sensitivities; plus, it’s wonderful for next-to-skin wear during warmer months. Because cotton is an inelastic fiber, it can be harder on the hands for some people; cotton blends because are easier to knit or crochet with. Cotton’s inelastic nature can also make it difficult to use for cables or in colorwork projects; however, textured stitches will show up beautifully!
