Hello group, I've received some inquiries about the cotton yarns we
have available for sale. Since the stock changes so rapidly, I thought
it was time to update the list for everyone.
Our cotton stock changes weekly because of the volume we deal with. We
don't have any mill ends, even though we are able to sell our cottons
for $6.50/pound. This is because we get our cottons from Yarn Jockeys
on the East Coast who deal directly with the manufacturers, they are
never leftovers or "end of the run" remnants. Some of the
manufacturers we carry are Pharr, Oakdale, Conshohocken, and National.
Here is a current list of our $6.50/pound cottons, for cotton tops,
afghans, natural fiber baby blankets, and kitchen items (potholders,
table runners, dishcloths, etc.)
8/3 cotton: royal, olive, coal marl (dark gray/olive/light gray),
pink, dark forest
8/2 cotton: country blue, 3 shades of green, peach
16/2 cotton: off-white, navy
20/2 cotton: red, ruby, jade, black, dark brown, navy, olive, straw,
On a standard gauge knitting machine, we suggest using Tension 8 with
the following combinations:
8/3, 1 strand
16/2, 3 strands
20/2, 4 strands
Hand knitters and crocheters are using our cottons in all weights and
combinations for doilies, garments, and more.
We stock all colors of Tamm Perle 100% Mercerized Cotton, $9.90/per
cone (190 gram cones). This is what we would consider a "designer
cotton" because it looks and acts like a dress yarn. Because it is
mercerized it will not bias or shrink when laundered properly.
Mercerized cottons are not to be used for dishcloths, however, because
they are not absorbent.
We also have a nice stock of 8/4 Cotton Tale at $21.60/pound. The
color list is found here:
