EcoYarns :: Organic Cotton

EcoYarn :: Organic Cotton

So we reach the end of our featured ecoyarns and what better way to close than with some beautiful organic cotton? This is worsted weight yarn is made up of 100% organic Peruvian cotton and leave it to the color geniuses at Malabrigo to bring out the beauty of natural dyes. There is an amazing range of colors, from an intense indigo to the most muted peach.

This is a limited edition yarn and one gets the sense that this is truly experimental, some of the colorways have delicate tonal variations. Lima is a beautiful aqua with creamy undertones. Then there is the striking combination of pewter and yellow of the Espaciado colorway. This is a very special yarn collection and the care of its production will shine through in your finished project.

ETA: It was a great shock to learn about the fire that broke out at the Malabrigo Mill. This is a terrible tragedy. We have a large backstock of all their yarns at the store, so knitters do not need to go without. Our thoughts and best wishes are with Antonio, Carla and Tobias.
