WHAT IS IT?
DK soft cotton is a lovely range of pure cotton yarn that will gradually replace Double Top DK cotton which is now being phased out. Our new soft cotton is smooth and soft with an even round twist available in bright, muted and rich shades. It is made by twisting 7 strands of 34/2nm cotton, so whilst the count is different from Double Top it can be worked alongside it in order to give you the widest possible colour palette.*Also available in 4ply*
WHAT'S IT FOR?
It is perfect for knitting by hand or on a chunky gauge knitting machine or crocheting to double knitting patterns, but it's also a great all round craft yarn being excellent for weaving and knotting crafts. It has a soft, but strong handle and a more defined stitch definition as it has less “fluff” than the brushed surface of Double Top.
Soft cotton is highly absorbent making it excellent for turning into colourful tea towels, dishcloths, wash cloths, bathmats or placemats (whether knitted, crocheted or woven). The white and ecru options can be dyed to your own colour palette with cold water dyes and these neutral shades are also used in the technique of candlewicking.
