100% California Cleaner Cotton™ / Grown, Spun, dyed in USA
Worsted weight
180yd [165m] / 100g
4.5 sts / inch on size US 7 [4.5 mm] needles

Big sister to Willet, our worsted weight Whimbrel is sourced from the same high-quality, responsibly grown Cleaner Cotton. (Visit our blog to get the full scoop on this amazing fiber!) The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. At a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch, this versatile 3-ply cotton yarn is destined to become a true workhorse, suitable for garments, shawls, and accessories for all seasons.

A note about our dyed cotton: Some colors may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colors; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colors only.

New shades for 2019: Bow, Abalone, Land, Pelagic, and Sloop
