8/2 Cottolin Organic Yarn description:
This yarn is made from an organic cotton and linen blend and is fabulous in kitchen and table linens, summer tops. This Organic Cottolin is also available at an affordable price!
If you're looking for a project try our exclusive Cottolin Tea Towel Kit. Using 4 Colors of Cottolin to make 8 tea towels measuring 17-18” x 28-30” each. These towels are strong, color fast and easy to weave using a four thread herringbone on a four shaft loom with a 20” weaving width.
Care: Hand or machine wash, machine dry on low or air and damp press.
Knitters hint: the linen keeps lace stitches open and shapely. If you ever felt the urge to create lace panels for light filtering... here's the yarn to use!
Note: sometimes Cottolin is spelled Cotolin, but in each case this refers to a cotton linen blend.
Love my new wire heddles! I recently inherited a VERY old counter-balance four-harness rug loom (J.L. Hammett). After weaving four items and fighting with rusty old heddles and heddle bars, I'd had enough! Took off all the old heddles, cleaned up those bars, and installed new wire heddles from Halcyon Yarn. What a difference! I just finished weaving my second dish towel this morning with Halcyon's Homestead 8/2 Cotton and couldn't be happier with the results!
