5/2 Cotton Warp

Thank you for all of your pattern purchases in the month of January. As promised, half of the proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders for a total of $50.
 
I have just added a new yarn, 5/2 Cotton Warp, to my Artfire shop. It is a basic, inexpensive cotton yarn usually used for warping in weaving but it works beautifully as a fingering weight cotton yarn. I made two wash cloths by holding two strands double. I'm casting on for a baby sweater in the next few days. I gave a skein of it to a swap partner and she is making a summer shawl from it. This yarn has a lot of possibility at 460 yards and only $6.50 a skein.

Here is the copy from the listings and a picture of the colors I just listed:

Enjoy hand painted yarns for a fraction of the cost!

This fingering weight yarn is a sturdy 5/2 cotton perfect for warp in weaving or as yarn for knitting or crochet. It is soft, very absorbent and can be machine washed. Weave a summer wrap, hold double and knit or crochet a wash cloth or make a unique garment for a special child in your life.

This yarn was dyed using fade resistant dyes and the yarn is sturdy enough for the regular wash. However, it is recommended that you wash on cool and dry flat to minimize fading that is typical for brightly colored cotton fibers.

100g minimum (sometimes the skeins run heavy)
463 yards minimum
100% fingering weight cotton (size 5/2)
