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.
your customer service is always wonderful.
I wish you would carry a more tightly spun unmercerized 8/2 cotton. I don't like the way the 8/2 cotton you carry washes--it doesn't look crisp after a few washes and so the patterns blur. Please consider carrying an additional line.
Also, I would love if you carried more 10/2 pearl cotton colors. You have a nice variety but I often do gradations of color and that is difficult.
(I can get what I need from other venders but I like dealing with y'all best.)
