Onion Organic Cotton yarn is a versatile, hard wearing non mercerised organic 4 ply weight cotton yarn from Denmark spun with 8 strands to create a round yarn which is not prone to splitting or twisting. Environmental impact is an issue close to our hearts so whilst we are keenly aware of the amount of water that cultivating cotton involves we sought out a cotton which is organically grown and minimally chemically processed. We would recommend this yarn for blankets and garments for babies or for summer sweaters and accessories. It is also ideal for Amigurumi crocheted toys.
This yarn can be machine washed but we would recommend drying flat as the yarn is so smooth that stitches slide over each other and stretch if it is hung up to dry.
