Need a replacement for wool this summer? Well we are certainly cottoning on to the alternatives! We have a huge selection of colours and thicknesses in sunny cotton and many new to Loop just this week!
We know you needed a 4ply to fill the gap of yarn needed for those lightweight projects so introducing DMC Natura 4ply Cotton. Soft, strong and machine washable, it’s ideal for baby knits and updating your favourite shawls with a cotton alternative.
At the other end of the needle (or hook) we have DMC Natura XL for quick instant gratification projects. Colours range from the prettiest pastels to zingy brights.
We also have a collection of patterns to compliment this beautiful new yarn. Baby hats and booties, a baby bolero, a colourful cushion and a throw, plus two avian friends to chose from (either chicks or birds), that all use the 4ply cotton.
Fun, bright colours are covered by Rico with their double knitting weight cotton. This mercerised cotton has a slight lustre giving it a lovely smooth finish and feel.
For the finest of lacey crochet and the dainties of doilies, we have Rico Crochet Cotton. Similar to the DK with a mercerised finish it really holds it’s shape for the detail of lace stitches.
Finally, new and hot off the press (or mill rather) is the beautiful lace weight from Isager. A flat tape yarn made from pure cotton, we can’t wait to see how this one knits up. In fact, we’ll be bringing you more about this yarn next week, so stay tuned!
Happy knitting and crocheting!
