Organic Cotton by Laines du Nord is a premium cotton yarn made with organic cotton in Italy. It is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified by The Institute for Ethical and Environmental Certification. Laines du Nord are renowned for creating quality yarns in an ethical and sustainable matter.
This yarn feels soft and creates a fluid and drapey fabric. Cotton is a cool and hard-wearing fibre.
Each skein is 100g (3.5iz) and is 340m (371yds) long. It’s sized as a 5ply / sport weight yarn, but personally it feels more like an 8ply / DK weight yarn to me.
Just a note: like most cotton yarns, Organic Cotton can split when you’re crocheting with it. I’ve selected the shape and size of the crochet hook for the Calm Chevron Blanket to reduce this, and it only does this occasionally for me (I just fix it up as I do the stitch). This is a minor inconvenience for using an organic cotton yarn that creates a blanket that feels soft and drapes beautifully.
