Yarn Spotlight Extra

In the Fall issue of Interweave Crochet, Yarn Spotlight focuses on cottons and what each kind is best suited for making. The swatches are worked in the delightful wattle stitch.

Here's a bonus review:

Kollage Yarns
, 100% organic cotton, 160 yards, 90 grams, color natural
Note: no longer available in colors

Hook: H

Kollage is committed to keeping this yarn fully produced in the United States. So when their U.S. dyer closed down, they discontinued the colored yarn and kept the undyed. This tightly plied yarn moves smoothly through the stitches, creating terrific stitch definition while remaining very pliable. The undyed organic yarn has a very, well, organic look and feel. It's perfect for a facecloth. Wrap it up in a strand of itself with some handmade soap.

See five other cottons reviewed in the current issue of Interweave Crochet.
