Looking for a cotton yarn with a bit of oomph? Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized is the answer.

This product has all the features that make cotton great and more. Mercerization is a treatment used to give cotton a luxurious sheen. It makes the threads stronger, reduces the lint from the fiber, and makes it absorb dyes better. The result will be a cotton yarn with brighter colors, that holds its shape and colors better over time and that has a shiny look to it. 

Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized is a super fine yarn made out of 4 threads spun together. The whole range comes with our “easy start” pull-out tab, making it much handier to find the beginning of your skein. 

Need some inspiration? Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized will look great in lace projects.  We recommend doilies, dishcloths, pot holders, totes, and rugs for your house. It will be suitable for any kind of garment for babies, children, and adults. And let’s not forget stuffed toys, amigurumi, and cute animals.

Time to give a vibrant touch to your projects with our Friends Cotton 8/4 Mercerized.

NOTE: Please note that a printing error has occurred on the label, the correct length of the yarn is 160 m (174 yds). 

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I loved to work with this yarn. It is smooth and it glides beautifully when crocheting. Perfect for the project for the T-Rex by Anneka Den Outer that I used it for. As we live in a warm climate, we require a yarn that breathes and not too heavy. This mercerised yarn gives the finished article a sheen as well ensures longevity with the strength of the blanket that our Grandson will use on many occasions.


The Friends 8/4 cotton yarn is my favorite to work with for many colorful reasons. I have used for making baby sweaters and blankets, granny square purses, toy animals, and many dolls. It is strong and leaves a smooth finish. It is all natural, so I feel safe using it for kids toys. Did I mention the colors are many and beautiful. You will not be disappointed. Happy stitching!!


This is a great yarn to work with. It is very shiny and strong. It doesn't split which is good for beginners and decorations. It has nice colours but there isn't a wide variety like the non-mercerized cotton yarn. It is a little bit rough on the hands when working but not too bad. I would recommend this yarn.


This is such a fantastic cotton yarn!! It's shiny and strong and comes in great colors!! The dyes are bold and true to their names. It lays beautifully when crocheted!! I would definitely get again for wearables and gifts.


Mercerized cotton in general is very beautiful and shiny but this one is special one. Plus all advantages - extra delicious price. So strongly recommend for everyone who needs mercerized cotton.
