Chic Cotton from Figgi Yarns
“New yarn for 2013”
Chic cotton is a plush, delightfully textured 100% Turkish cotton with a randomly changing thickness. The thick and thin variation of the yarn presents a soft, light-weighted feel with an interesting yet subtle self-pattern.
The cotton is sourced from the beautiful South Mediterranean region of Antep, in Turkey, which is well known for its top quality cotton farming and hot climate.
As soft as cotton wool and drapey as silk, this pure Turkish cotton is fun to knit both chunky designs and fine structures with a flirty and fun colour palette to suit all tastes. Chic is also the perfect choice for soft baby knits.
Undyed option available for your own dyeing adventures.
Chic cotton is available in a super-economical 130g ball
- 130gram/4.58oz size ball.
- Tension size 4-6mm/US6-10
I have recently been testing this gorgeous yarn on a knitting machine, wonderful it works without any issues, I used a knitmaster 321 knitting machine, however i would recommend a chunky knitting machine as the style of yarn is more suited to chunky designs.
