The grass is green, and the birds are calling you to join them in the shade of your favorite tree… Gather your blanket and basket, it’s time for a picnic! Our soft and breezy Picnic Cotton captures this very spirit of summer. One hundred percent Peruvian Pima cotton, this yarn is made from fibers with an extra-long staple length that make for a uniquely smooth and strong yarn. Spun in a two-color ingabbiato structure (“encaged” in Italian), Picnic Cotton starts with a soft, fluffy warm-white core, which then gets intermittently wrapped in delicate, colored threads. Knit up, it makes a beautifully marled fabric with a gentle, lovely drape. Machine wash- and dryable, Picnic Cotton comes in very affordable 50-gram skeins and nineteen fresh colors inspired by the sweetness of summer. Think Red Poppy, Sweet Nectarine, and Key Lime! We love this light fingering weight yarn for cool summer garments and accessories and anytime baby knits and housewares. We’re also happy to say that Picnic Cotton is Peru Fair Trade Certified. This means the mill that makes it is committed to fair and safe working conditions, as well as a respect for the environment, with low-impact production techniques, a responsible consumption of resources, and the reuse, recycling, and reduction of raw materials. Very nice!
