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.

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.

Coming from Denmark, I did NOT expect my order to arrive so quickly! I have yet to actually start on the project I purchased this yarn for (I can't find my hooks!) but even just taking it out of the bag I'm so impressed with the quality. This yarn is soft and the ply is perfect. I cannot WAIT to purchase more, though I understand why a lot of the colors I wanted are sold out!
Pros: Great quality, 100% cotton, great value for quality, beautiful colors.
Cons: Higher shipping, lots of colors sold out.
Overall, a wonderful product, and I'm looking forward to a color restock!
Great yarn! When it's still rolled in the yarn ball, I wasn't quite impressed with it because it didn't feel as soft to me. However, once you start working with it, it is super soft. The stitch definition is great! I actually doubled this yarn to get double the weight and wow, there really was great stitch definition & the yarn did not split. I got this yarn in orange.
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
Used this to make a summer tanktop w/ Size 8 needles-- so great! I'm used to working with wool, not cotton but this was very nice and soft to work with. I recommend weaving in the ends throughout the project, as I noticed some fraying when I left it too long which made threading the needle a bit difficult.
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.
