Yearn Worthy Yarn: Cloud Cotton

Still on a plant fiber kick, this week I’ve come back to cotton. It isn’t recycled this time but an honest to goodness 100% organic cotton. This lovely yarn from Estelle Yarns is certified organic and comes in wide range of sturdy colors.

Cloud Cotton is available in dyed and undyed. The dyed cotton ranges from bright spring greens to soothing blues. The undyed cotton is natural looking browns and neutrals.

Cloud Cotton is nice and soft, true to its name. The worsted cotton is light and easy to work with. Be careful as it is known to shed in the beginning but knits up nice and neat in the end.
