Baby Cotton Organic Mercerized is an incredibly strong, shinier version of our organic superstar: Baby Cotton.
Mercerizing makes cotton yarn glossy and shiny, it keeps its shape and doesn’t shrink in the wash. The yarn becomes extremely durable and more resistant to mold. The wonderful depth of color is also characteristic of mercerized cotton. Since the fibers can absorb more color, the result is a much more intense and lasting color.
The entire line of Hobbii Baby Cotton is spun from long, flexible fibers from the finest Egyptian cotton and it is vegan as well. But this mercerized version is something special indeed!
Mercerizing is a complex process that, among other things, includes immersion in a strong base. But Baby Cotton Organic Mercerized is produced in a new, more sustainable fashion than the traditional process. In specialized plants, the reusable alkali from old batteries is extracted, and these are reused to mercerize our Baby Cotton. That way, precious materials are reused in a new, beneficial way.
The entire process is approved, controlled, and complies with all social and environmental quality standards required to achieve a GOTS certification (Nr. GO0361). It’s the highest achievable standard in the production of organic textiles.
The GOTS certification is an internationally recognized standard, which is used for the environmentally friendly and socially responsible production of ecological textiles. It stands for very high demands in all parts of the supply chain, from when the raw goods are harvested, to you having the finished product on your needles.

First time ordering and i am loving it! Yarn feels very soft and has a nice shine to it. I got color 14 and i like it as much as I liked it online. I am using it to make a dress that I will be wearing to a wedding in hot weather so I hope it won’t feel too hot. I just wish it came in bigger skeins.
So happy to find affordable GOTS cotton. Already soft, and only gets softer after a wash. Holds up nicely, even when my kids play with the Amigurumi. I have liked all the Hobbii Cotton yarn I've tried so far. (Which is most of them). Hope for more skin tones in the organic options, soon.
When I saw the dark violet color, I was super excited. Fingering/sock yarn in mercerized cotton in these colors is a dream come true. Absolutely beautiful.
It's beautiful and soft, and the colors are just as the pictures show. It's not often I can find light weight cottons that are not only soft but be as well
Perfect for a vintage look crochet christening gown for baby. The "white is a vintage white. Looking forward to posting images.
