Sea Island Cotton Yarn 3×16/2ne

£97.00

The most luxurious and magnificent of all the cottons in the world, this thicker weight ultra long staple Sea Island cotton yarn is a glory. It has a lustre and sheen unlike anything we’ve seen, dyes up beautifully. and feels silky smooth. Much more information on this yarn here. Please note that this is a very fluffy yarn while weaving, but works up beautifully.

I use procion MX fibre reactive dyes and although this yarn feels like silk, it’s still a durable cotton. I scour this using boiling water and leave dye to batch for 24 hours, or set it with heat. It can take it, but like anything please always sample first to make sure you get the results you want.

 

Yarn sold in cones of approximately 875g
