Soho Summer DK is a cool and comfortable 100% cotton yarn that is incredibly silky against the skin. Lightweight and luxurious to wear, with a slightly polished finish. Beautiful for knitting and crochet, the super-soft fiber and finely plied construction provides an elegant matte finish in a sunwashed color palette that’s fun, fresh, and sophisticated. A true DK gauge, this yarn may be used/substituted in a wide range of DK patterns.
Great for sweaters and tunics, as well as accessories and home decor items, this yarn also makes a great knitted t-shirt or camisole. Finished pieces feature wonderful drape without being too dense, and the firm, even finish offers great stitch definition. Weavers, this is a great cotton to try in striped table linens and towels this summer!
