WHAT IS IT?
Royal 4ply soft cotton is a lovely pure cotton yarn that will gradually replace Good Fortune 4ply cotton which is now being phased out. This new Royal soft cotton is smooth and soft with an even round twist. It is made by twisting 4 strands of 34/2nm cotton, so whilst the count is different from Good Fortune it can be worked alongside it in order to give you the widest possible colour palette.*Also available in DK*
WHAT'S IT FOR?
It is perfect for knitting by hand or on a standard gauge knitting machine or crocheting to 4ply 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 Royal Good Fortune.
Royal 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.
Suitable Crafts: Braidmaking, Crocheting, Embroidery, Knitting, Knotting, Lacemaking, Macrame, Tapestry Weaving, Tasselmaking, Weaving
