6mm short, 8mm short, 10mm Short, 12mm Short
Our newest chunky yarn is 100% recycled, fully washable and utterly glorious. We’ve been searching for an ethical chunky cotton yarn for so long and so we’re over the moon to have found this – it’s a beauty!
Perfect for all year round, but especially summer, our big cotton yarn suits needle sizes 6-12. Choose size 6mm for tighter stitches and a sturdier finish, or up to 12mm for a looser, softer finish. Each size of needle gives a really lovely knitted feel and it so gentle when knit up.
Because the cotton is super soft it will feel beautiful worn next to the skin, so lends itself brilliantly to vests, t-shirts and fine jumpers.
The cotton is less chunky than our Super Chunky merino, so we recommend an 8-10mm needle for this yarn. Any of our current patterns can be made in our Big Cotton yarn, but we suggest the 10mm patterns for the best results.
We’ve washed our knitted garments on a delicate 30 degree setting in the washing machine and they come out perfect.
Our Big Cotton is a multi-ply yarn, and is a bulky weight made up of lots of individual ply’s. This can mean when knitting with it, the ply’s can come apart slightly – just twist it as you go and once it’s knit up it won’t fray.
In a range of 15 dreamy shades, we predict our Big Cotton recycled yarn is going to be a firm favourite with you LAD’s!
