5/2 Pearl Cotton Yarn description:
Pearl Cotton has to be one of the most versatile yarns we sell. It Can be used for household projects: table cloths, coverlets, dish towels, placemats and napkins, curtains, baby blankets, and scarves - to name a few! It's also equally at home in knitted garments and woven fabrics for clothing. Pearl Cotton is a 2-ply mercerized cotton yarn with a lustrous sheen and a distinctive twist. It's easy to work with, strong and durable. It softens with use and has a nice drape when woven in a twill pattern. The best thing about Pearl Cotton is that it comes in 4 weights and a rainbow of over 70 colors, so your options are endless. Buy a lot or buy a little. We offer Pearl Cotton in two put-ups. Halcyon's exclusive mini cones allow you to buy lots of different colors without buying lots of yarn. The large cones allow you to buy greater quantities at greater savings.
Color Fastness Pearl Cotton is generally quite color fast; however, if you are using contrasting colors always test a woven or knitted sample using the same washing method you plan to use on the finished piece. If there is excess dye and bleeding is a problem, skein and wash the yarn before weaving or knitting.
Please note that Pearl Cotton and Perle Cotton are the same thing: Pearl Cotton is the English spelling, and is used interchangeably with "Perle Cotton", or even "Coton Perle", the French spelling.
