Simply Cotton Organic Sport Yarn

$2.99 50g / skein


This 100% organic cotton yarn is good for you and Mother Earth. No dyes or bleach are used to process the yarn, keeping the fiber super soft, easy to work with, and sure to bring pleasure to anyone who wears it. The natural white of this pristine state is also an ideal canvas for natural dyes or any other home dyeing adventures; be sure to use plant fiber-friendly dye process.

Due to the natural state of the yarn, expect a 5-10% shrinkage in length of knitted fabric. Preparing a gauge swatch is highly recommended, washing and drying with your intended care methods in order to check shrinkage and gauge before knitting your project.

In sport weight, this yarn is good for light warm weather garments and breathable accessories. Also available in worsted and fingering weights.

I love this yarn. Organic and unbleached, and also the softest, squishiest cotton I've ever felt. It's a joy to work with and I just want to cuddle everything I make with it!

This is the best cotton I have worked with and I have gone thru many a brand. Cool, soft and comfortable plus it’s easy to wash. I love the white, reflects the sun. I buy it thru the wholesale loads. Plus you cannot beat the price. You can tell no bleach has been used and this adds to its charm.

This yarn creates the finest, most comfortable lacy tops I have ever owned. I live in California and cotton yarn for most items. Tops, Shawls and crocheted pineapple jackets - this yarn does it all. Plus the added benefit I do not have to wind it. Washes beautifully, I always hand wash my handmade items in Kookaburra wash. Buying it in the huge bundles from now on. Thanks for another great yarn. Especially the exact same yarn would cost me 14.98 at the nearest ‘yarn boutique’

This Simply Cotton yarn has been delightful to work with. I have been making washcloths as takealong projects for a few months now. I bought this yarn in bulk and can get 3 crocheted washcloths from one ball. I made 50 washcloths for a handwashing service at my church, and I'm finishing up 15 more for my daughter's preschool teachers. This yarn is so incredibly soft--in the ball, as I work, and in the finished product. I've been receiving many comments about the softness in the week or so since I gave these out at the handwashing service. I highly recommend this yarn. Keep it up, KnitPicks!! Please keep this good thing going!
