8/2 Cotton Cone
I love Aurora Earth 8/2 Cotton! I’ve made several projects with it and think it makes the best dish towels, softening more and more as its washed. No color bleed, which is priceless after putting hours and hours into a project, knowing it won’t be damaged in the wash.
Great cotton yarn for weaving
Great cotton yarn for weaving. I used it to weave the fabric for an apron and impressed with the ease, look and feel of the woven fabric.

AURORA EARTH 8/2 COTTON CONE
I've been trying different brands of 8/2 unmercerized cotton and I like the Aurora Earth 8/2 Cotton because it has some texture to it. I use it to make towels and they tends to wash and dry well. There's also an assortment of colors to choose from that seems to be readily available whenever I need them.
