Cotton is a soft, durable, and breathable natural fiber that is widely used for knit and crochet projects such as garments, blankets, and home decor items. Available in different weights and textures, from fine and smooth to super bulky and textured, cotton yarn is a great choice for knitters and crocheters who love to create original items with their own hands.
Cotton yarns are also known to have excellent water absorption properties with short drying times, which makes them great for the kiddos, bath and kitchen accessories (crocheted dishcloths, towels, coasters). With excellent stitch definition, good amount of stretch, and no splitting, 100% cotton yarns are great for colorwork and textured stitches, making this a fiber you don't want to miss out on!
Find the Best Cotton Yarn Options for Your Knitting & Crochet Projects
Searching for the best cotton yarn for your knitting and crocheting projects? Our hand-picked comfortable, strong, easy-care cotton yarns are available in a variety of shades (from vibrant colors to natural hues) and are blended with other fibers such as wool, silk, linen, polyester, or acrylic to create different textures and properties.
For hats, scarves, and gloves, the perfect yarn choice is a cotton polyester yarn that is warm and durable. If you want to create lightweight garments such as tops, sweaters, and cardigans, you need a sport weight yarn, finer than medium weight yarn but thicker than superfine yarn. For example, mercerized cotton yarn (that has undergone a chemical process making it stronger and shinier) is perfect to wear in the summer.
