WHAT IS IT?
Finesse is a lovely, simple, smooth pure undyed carded cotton. Unlike a mercerised cotton it has a soft matte finish and is perfect for dyeing.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
All our undyed yarns can be dyed with hot or cold water dyes using tools and equipment you would have in your kitchen. Cotton needs to be dyed with cold water, procion or fibre reactive dyes and can also be dyed with natural dyes – into solid or unique space-dyed colourways.
Strong, smooth yarns such as Finesse can be used for a huge variety of crafts. It’s just about thick enough for patient knitters and crocheters to use as laceweight or is perfect to machine knit into draping garments and accessories. Few people are allergic to cotton so it’s a great alternative to wool and a budget option instead of silk.
A perfect yarn to weave in the warp or weft, knot into macramé and braiding projects, use for lacemaking, tassels and tatting and excellent to stitch within quilting and candlewicking projects.
