Casco Bay Cotton Worsted Medium Yarn description:
Halcyon Yarn's Signature Casco Bay Cotton yarns are the most beautiful, versatile Cotton yarns available! Casco Bay Cottons are perfect for knitting, crocheting and weaving in two practical weights of 100% Cotton. The soft, subtle texture, easy Care and mellow sunwashed colors of our Casco Bay Sport Cotton and Casco Bay Worsted Cotton are a welcome addition to any weaver's or knitter's palette. The tiny criss-cross binder gives just a hint of elasticity, a feature that is so welcome in knitting and Crocheting with Cotton. Weavers can use Casco Bay Cotton yarns alone in warp and weft or in combination with many of our other fine yarns. Consider it as pattern weft in overshot or summer and winter patterns. It's also an interesting weft for warp-face weaves. Knitters will also find Casco Bay Cottons combine beautifully with other yarns!
Casco Bay Cottons Care:
Machine washability and subtle colors that fade softly and gradually make these ideal yarns for easy care children's sweaters and baby blankets. As with any Cotton some shrinkage may occur after washing. To accurately determine sizing and sett or gauge be sure to wash and finish your swatch as you will your completed piece. Due to its soft construction, items made with these yarns fill out nicely after gentle machine washing and drying. When working with bold or highly contrasting colors we suggest testing for color fastness. It is not uncommon for excess dye to be present in strong colors. If bleeding occurs, skein and wash until the water runs clear and let hang dry.
