What are cotton yarns? 

Cotton yarns are spun from fibres found in the seed pod of the cotton plant. Natural cotton is usually white. After being harvested the cotton is cleaned, dyed and spun into yarn. Compared to wool, cotton is inelastic. Consequently it lacks the "bounce" of other natural fibres. Blending cotton with synthetic fibres allows the cotton to stretch, lessens the weight and allows it to dry faster. Cotton knitting yarn creates great stitch definition. It is durable, holds colour well and washes easily. 

Laughing Hens is an independent family-run firm, dedicated to supplying everything you need for knitting and crochet.
