We really just cannot get enough of our fantastic Friends Cotton 8/6.

Cotton is a great, strong, durable, breathable, absorbent, and lightweight natural fiber. Friends Cotton 8/6 has no less than all these characteristics and it is made out of 6 threads spun together.

All the shades have been thoughtfully selected to create a complete range that spans from bright to pastel and darker colors.

The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein.

This fiber is also easy to take care of, making Friends Cotton 8/6 so versatile that you can craft anything with it. Need some inspiration? We recommend dishcloths, pot holders, totes, and rugs for your house. It will be suitable for any kind of garment for both babies, children, and adults. And let’s not forget stuffed toys, amigurumi, and cute animals. Cotton has a great stitch definition and will work amazingly well with textured stitches.

Aren’t you already in love with Friends Cotton 8/6?

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at the

About the Friends family

The colors of the yarns included in the Friends family are literally friends!

This means the colour numbers correspond to the same colour across the different Friends yarns. If you order the same colour number from two different Friends yarns, they will match. Please note that there can be slight differences in the shades from fiber to fiber.

Have fun combining and matching them in all your projects.

This yarn is so soft! I like to do projects without having to look at them and the biggest issue with that is a lot of times the yarn strands won't stay together so I make too many mistakes if I don't look. With this yarn the threads are spun together perfectly that I haven't had the yarn split once. This is my favorite cotton yarn now


Absolutely recommend! Perfect for amigurumi and small projects! Doesn't break from tension (hello fellow tight crocheters!). No fraying or splitting when working with it, either, which is a huuuuuuge relief considering I'm working with smaller hooks for specific amigurumi projects using this yarn weight.


I crochet a lot of amigurumi using 8/6 cotton and the Friends colors are really rich and perfect for those project. I really like the Pink Berry Smoothie shade.


I love this cotton yarn! It’s fantastic for amigurumi! I think I’ll try the 8/4 next time. It’s on par with the rainbow cotton.


This is my absolute favourite yarn for Amigurumi
I do some try into work with 8/4 and 8/8 abut mostly it’s 8/6
Works great
