8/2 Cotton Variegated 4 oz Cones
8/2 Cotton Variegated is a beautiful unmercerized cotton. Great for weaving and standard-gauge or fine-gauge machine knitting.
Versatile for every type of towel, table linen and style of clothing. Strong enough for warp and weft and machine knitting.
Works great with our Aurora Earth 8/2 unmercerized cotton which comes in a spectrum of colors to mix perfectly with these variegated color combinations.
Weaving in a simple tabby pattern will give you a nice, homespun fabric. Huck, basket & waffle weaves also work well with this 8/2.

I use this 8/2 cotton to crochet dishcloths to sell at a local craft fair. I sell all I can make! It works up beautifully and, because it is unmercerized, it absorbs and releases water well. Unlike the cotton yarn most crafters use for dishcloths, dishcloths made with this cotton yarn/thread never feel slimy and wash up nicely with little shrinkage. I like to buy the 4oz cones to have a trial look at the colors, then buy the 1 pound cone in colors I think will sell well.
