Yearn Worthy Yarn: Hope USA Cotton – Organic DK Natural

The weather has finally started to take a turn towards the hot and muggy here in Washington, D.C. and that means I need to take a hard look at my knitting projects. Because let me tell you, knitting with wool or another heavy fiber when it get’s hot and humid, is not fun.

Thank goodness I’ve recently found Hope USA Cotton Organic. This organic cotton looks sturdy yet breathable, perfect for the season.

Hope organic cotton yarn is produced and grown in the U.S. and comes in a DK worsted weight. This yarn is also sold undyed in its natural color.

The other great thing about this yarn is that 10% of all proceeds from the sale of Hope yarns go to a charity of your choice. Every three months, the USA Yarns Project posts the possible donations on their web site and you get to vote to determine who receives the money. You can also suggest a charity or someone in need for this project. I love it when companies give back.

This a definitely a great summer yarn.
