The benefits of cotton yarn

Cotton is a plant-based fiber - it is spun from fibers found in the seed pod (or boll) of the cotton plant - which gives it its own characteristics and properties.

Unlike wool, which requires delicate case, cotton is more robust and can generally be washed in a washing machine. In fact, cotton yarn becomes softer with each wash!

If you're on a budget, cotton yarn tends to be cheaper, unless you opt for Pima cotton, which is considered the best quality as it offers a smooth fabric that is wrinkle-resistant and smooth to touch.

Garments made from cotton help to keep you cool. They are also breathable and moisture-wicking, making them perfect for summer pieces.

Cotton is also hypoallergenic and, therefore, often chosen for knitting or crocheting items for newborns and infants.
