The dark normally teaches us to appreciate the light – not to mention clear and strong colors. Give a little room in the dark to see these great bright colors of Sultan Shadow unfold.
All the variations in the Shadow series have a foundation in deep black, which the colors then slowly grow from. The dark bottom gives the clear colors extra power and makes them seemingly shine and catch the eye.
Cotton Kings Sultan Shadow is a lovely soft cake yarn in 100% cotton, which is loved and admired for its beautiful color changes. The quality results from 4 thin threads that are not twined together, which makes it extra soft and airy.
The colors in Sultan Shadow change slowly, by only 1 thread at a time, which makes for a fantastically beautiful transition of colors. It makes it extra exciting to knit and crochet with because one gets to see how the colors meet when your creative project unfolds. It takes about 1 skein to make a shawl/scarf.
Tip: before using the Sultan Shadow skein, run the 4 threads through a bead so the threads are gathered throughout the work.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I love this cotton. I have made many beautiful shawls and blankets with it.
I started buying it when it was called sultans shadow. There were many beautiful colors to choose from. I bought most of them. I started a blanket with the purple shadow and needed a couple more cakes but unfortunately it was discontinued. I’m excited to see it back under a new name although there are less colors.
Today I filled my cart so I could get started on some orders only to find that even with the discount it’s become cost prohibitive.
The product itself is definitely 5 stars.
The cost of the product is 1 star
Worked up this yarn using a 3.5mm crochet hook. It’s a thin yarn that gives a drape effect to your project that flows very nicely. This yarn is 4 thin strands that are NOT twisted together, it takes some time getting used to but the colored strands change one at a time giving this gorgeous gradient to your project. I absolutely recommend this yarn. I think this yarn would be nice if it was twisted though, not having them twisted gives the yarn a much softer feel to it but I believe it would be just as soft if twisted together.
Such a love yarn to use, 4 threads have been a non-issue for me despite not using a bead. I have also never had a cake yarn collapse… I must admit it’s not treated very well, it comes everywhere with me in a tote bag (not a yarn bag) and comes out of the bag to the couch or floor when at home. So far so good. I have currently used the black/sage. I have cerise awaiting use, with denim and olive on the way and curry in my cart! It’s so soft and has a lovely drape. I expect that it’s going to be warm as well.
I bought this and three other colors to make a Hogwarts themed wall hanging. This yarn is not the easiest thing I’ve ever worked with but it’s also not the worst. It is nice and strong and holds it weight well, and the color change is great. It recommended using a bead to keep the thread together but I did not have one. I did find a button and I have to say it’s working pretty great and I would recommend it. It’s much easier to feel a button I think then a bead down the line.
This is gorgeous yarn! Some people may be intimidated by the strands, but once you get going, you won’t even realize it’s stranded. I started with a bead on one project, but not on the other. Honestly, I didn’t notice the difference. I’m using an inline hook (Furls Alpha) and haven’t tried it with my Clovers or Tulips yet.
The colour changes have amazingly small joins - unlike some other colour change cakes. So much nicer, and way easier to hide.
