Radiant Cotton is a multiple-ply spun yarn with a very tight twist. It holds together better, is pre-shrunk, and is gassed, so it resists pilling much more than most spun cottons. This cotton has a luxurious sheen that gives a polished look to finished pieces. This 100% Egyptian cotton is pleasant to use, with a high quality worthy of your time and talents.
Egyptian cotton is a long-staple variety that out-performs other cottons by far. There are so many advantages to this great cotton--easy to knit, beautiful colors, durability. And the price? It's fabulous--What a good value!
- 100% Egyptian Cotton
- 100g hank is about 203yards
- Use US 5-6 needles DK weight for 21-22 stitches in 4"
- For crochet, use a G hook
- machine wash - warm, do not bleach, dry low or very low heat. I use a mesh bag in both washer and dryer, and dry only until damp, then lay flat. This results in almost no wrinkles.
