Cotton Yarn

Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre which grows in an boll around the seeds of the cotton plant and is almost pure cellulose. Cotton yarn is incredibly popular and can be used for almost all kinds of handmade projects ranging from summer garments to crocheted  cup cakes. Cotton fibre is weaker than silk and linen, but is more durable than wool.

Mercerized cotton is cotton that has undergone the process of mercerization. Mercerization adds luster and strength to the fibre while at the same time imparting a greater affinity for dye and making the yarn more hardwearing. This process also adds shape stability for garments and reduces propensity to shrinkage compared to regular cotton.

The many characteristics of cotton yarn

Cotton yarn has countless advantages. If you work with 100 % cotton fibre, you will be sure to get a soft end result, that feels very comfortable against the skin. If the weather is cold and grey, the cotton will keep you warm, which is why it is great for crocheting or knitting shawls, ponchos, tops, etc. Not only is cotton excellent by it self, it is also a great team player. It can be mixed with silk, linen or wool depending on which look you are going for. When you mix cotton yarn with other types of yarn, you will get a very durable and dirt resistant end result.

As you may have picked up on by now, cotton yarn can be used for many different projects - it is simply a great choice for most projects. In our shop, you will find a large selection of shades making it easier for you to knit or crochet your favorite project. As an example, you will find our extremely popular Cotton 8/4 Junior made of 100 % cotton fibre in an assortment of different shades at a very low price. This gives you plenty of opportunities, just let your imagination run wild.

Cotton yarn made of 100 % cotton fibre is often used for crochet or knit project for the little ones. What makes it a popular choice is the fact that it can be washed at 60 degrees. Be careful, however, when the cotton is mixed with other types of yarn, as this may change this quality.

What our customers say about Cotton Yarn

Shannon Murray

I was completely thrilled with my purchase! While the skeins are a little smaller than I am used to working with, the quality of the yarn is wonderful! It's soft and easy to work with, unlike other brands of cotton yarn that I have worked with over the years. The vibrant colors are what attracted me to the product, but the yarn itself is what will keep me coming back. Thank you for such a beautiful product!

Kirsten Mitchell

This soft, absorbent cotton yarn is perfect for beautiful dish- and washcloths. I know...do you really want to put all that time and effort into something so mundane, right? My answer...yes, I do. Something I use daily should be beautiful as well as useful. I feel special every time I use one, and plan to make some for gifts. I'm going to order more!

Susie Purdon

I love your cotton yarn. It is very soft and the colours are beautiful. I have been using it to make potholders, using 2 different 8/8 yarns together. The effects are lovely. Living in Tasmania, Australia wool shops are few and far between. So I will definately be ordering more. Thank you

Karen Brown

This cotton yarn is a delight to work with. I am weaving with it on a Rigid Heddle loom with a 12.5 dent heddle. It is soft, strong and the colours are wonderful. The pull skein is so easy to use and is the icing on the cake of this lovely cotton. I will certainly be ordering more.

Julie Nichelson

Love the feel of this cotton yarn. Using part to make crochet dish cloths, and plan to use the rest to make a bag. Good value for the price especially when you can find it on sale. Delivery was timely, especially for international shipping. I would definitely purchase this again.

Zulma Martinez

This yarn is beautiful and the price is right. I love the shine this yarn has. I bought it to make ladies shirt. Which will look dressy because of its shine. I highly recommend this yarn and it's a sport weight. I love cotton yarn it's all I use. Thank you Hobbii.

Dorothy Bush

Love this 8/4 cotton yarn. I'd bought it to compliment the Rainbow cotton I had purchased for my poncho. Same fine quality, same buttery feel as I work away. Thanks for a really nice yarn!

Joanne Smith

What's not to love, washable, colorful cotton yarn in the best weight. Did I mention colorful? Oh yeah, 60 gorgeous shades. I can't wait to try my summer patterns with these colors.

Zulma Martinez

I love this yarn. It's really soft. I love the shine it has. I love mercerized cotton yarn above all especially for baby clothing. I only wish they had more colors to choose from.

Jenny Carson

Bought this yarn for making a doily and am so happy with it. It doesn't split on me like some of the other cotton yarn I've worked with. Definitely will buy more
