Lovely soft cotton with ethics!

By: on 25 May 2020
I'm a new Grandmother and so I am seeking soft balls of potential to knit into just about anything you can make for a baby. I chose this yarn as it is 100% cotton and therefore washable and strong. It really is a beautiful product and on reading the label realised it is hand dyed and made by women in an economically depressed rural area of South Africa. It's better to knit with than other cotton yarns as it did not split too much while knitting and easy to remedy if it did. I made some booties and they look great!
