Light & summery, Willet is spun from t-shirt soft California Cleaner Cotton that is grown, spun & dyed in the U.S. Cleaner cotton is produced by a small group of family owned & operated farms in California that have pledged to not use toxic chemicals in the production of the cotton. They instead turn to integrated pest management as a first line of defense.
This versatile yarn can work as a sport or DK weight. With smooth, neat stitch definition, Willet is brilliant for baby knits, tanks, tees, & cardigans.
*A note about Quince dyed cotton: Some colors may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colors; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colors only. For best results, hand wash recommended, lay flat to dry.
Not to be missed are the all-natural, colorgrown heathers: Almond, Cashew, Pistachio, and Lentil. Rarer than white cotton varieties, colorgrown cotton contains natural green, brown, and red pigments. Almond and Cashew are made from white Cleaner Cotton™ and USA-grown brown colorgrown cotton. Pistachio and Lentil are made from white and colorgrown green Cleaner Cotton™.
