Colorful Cotton

Filed under: Vintage Meanderings — sadie @ 10:00 pm

We have quite a bit of wool in our store, and are now expanding our cotton yarns. The first group of our new cotton yarns is Ty-Dy from Knit One Crochet Too. Ty-Dy is a 100% cotton, multi-colored yarn. This yarn is very soft, and is suitable for any pattern using a worsted weight yarn. The colors stripe and gradually fade and blend into the next color. If you are familiar with their very poplar Paintbox yarn, you will love Ty-Dy, as it is the cotton version.

Take a look at the first colors that we ordered:

ty-dy 265 ty-dy 541 ty-dy 795

ty-dy 856 ty-dy 423 ty-dy 332
