Homestead 8/2 Cotton Yarn description:

Homestead Cotton is one of our most versatile yarns. It has a great color range, an earthy texture and it’s machine washable. You’ll find it well suited for a variety of fiber arts. Consider making items for the kitchen and bedroom, as well as fabric for clothing. Please allow for 15% shrinkage when calculating your yardage for a particular project.

Weavers:

You will find a multitude of uses for Homestead Cotton. Use it as warp and weft in dish towels and table linens or in combination with a cotton/linen blend such as Cottolin (Items 34 & 35) or a linen yarn such as Newport Linen (Item 178). When using cotton with other yarns of different fiber contents be aware of dissimilar shrinkage characteristics. Try alternating different fiber threads or use one as warp and one as weft.

Homestead Cotton is also an excellent choice as warp and tabby weft for overshot coverlets. For the pattern weft consider 2/8 Maine Line Wool (Item 22), Harrisville Shetland (Item 9) or Bartlett 2-Ply Sport Weight (Item 121).

• Tabby sett of 15-22 epi

• Twill sett of 22-30 epi

Knitters & Crocheters:

Homestead Cotton is also a great yarn for both hand and machine knitting. Double or even triple it for use in sport and worsted weight patterns. Using multiple strands lets you play with color. Start with six shades that work well together. Knit with three or four strands at a time and periodically drop one or two and pick up others. You will be amazed at how the colors blend and change.

• Single – fingering weight

• Doubled – sport weight

• Tripled – worsted weight

Color-fastness: As always, be conscious of highly contrasting color. If your sample suggests bleeding, skein the yarn and pre-wash it until the water runs clear. To limit bleeding in a finished piece, do not allow it to remain damp for long periods of air drying. Faster drying by machine is preferable.

Large Homestead Cotton (pound) cones are sold by actual weight. Yarn weight per cone will vary between 0.9 and 1.15 pounds and therefore your final invoice may reflect this difference. Please let us know if you need an exact quote prior to shipping.
