Acacia Print is the perfect example of a lovely mixed yarn where acrylic and cotton are spun together and enhance each other’s best qualities. The cotton ensures that the yarn feels soft against your skin and has good breathability, while the acrylic makes the yarn lighter and extra flexible.
Acacia Print has color changes in finely tuned shades. Take note that the print colors mix slightly where they meet, which can create a small deviation in color. The print version is beautiful on its own, but if you combine it with our solid color Acacia, you’ll find that there’s no end to how many creative designs and funky stripes you can make.
Acacia Print can be used for a variety of different things like a summer set for children and adults, light cardigans, and fabulous blankets. It’s soft and comfortable against your skin and is also a great choice if you want to avoid wool fibers.
The cotton content makes for slightly firmer yet comfortable fibers and makes it easy to work the stitches nice and even for a beautiful end result.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

Beautiful yarn! I love working it up best with a US 7/4.50 mm crochet hook, because it's definitely closer to a 2 (sport) weight than the listed 3 (dk) weight. I have found little-to-no splitting and this cotton/acrylic blend is SO soft and smooth! I purchased 2 skeins, each, in the colors Confetti (09), Golden Tan (02), Cantaloupe (05), and Candy Store (14). I'm currently making my 4 year old daughter a late Spring/Early Summer dress in this - this makes up a fantastic warm weather fabric!
I bought this hoping I could use it with another DK yarn but this one is noticiebly thinner than other dk yarns. I love the feel of this yarn and the colours! The colour changes happen at just the right paces. One big thing though, these don't tend to match up well with the solid colours and that seems like a big missed opportunity. I'll definitely buy more in the future but I'll be checking the colours super carefully so I can match them well enough.
I bought this yarn to make a summer dress. I have just started working with it and my goodness!! This is the Mercedes Benz of yarn! It is the softest yarn I have ever used, as well as being light enough for summer garments. It glides across the hook and feels amazing in my hands as I'm working with it, and on top of all that it is really pretty
I purchased Golden Tan (02), and wow! It is so incredibly soft and easy to work with. In person, this color is slightly darker than pictured, which only served better for my project. I was looking for something not too dark, but good for a fall sweater, and I certainly found it! Gorgeous yarn!
This is a beautiful skein of cotton/acrylic blend. It is soft to the touch and the colour variegation is my ideal colour scheme Antique Copper (06). I wish that I purchased more, but I was not sure how it would look and feel. Very excited to use it! Will purchase again!
