Yarn Review: Nurture

Nurture is a super soft, 100% Tanguis cotton. Tanguis cotton is grown in the Central Coast of Peru (this differs from Pima Cotton which is grown in the Northern Coast of Peru).  


The swatch in the above picture was made using size US 6 needles. Although Nurture is like any other cotton and has no elasticity, the softness makes this yarn nice to work with. Nurture has a slightly nubby yet uniform texture that when knit, almost raises the stitches. The fabric produced has a nice drape after blocking and is wonderfully soft.
