We love Caterpillar Cotton variegated yarn!

It works up so well when combined with our Cotton Tail 8/4 100% cotton yarn as well as our Organic 5/3 100% organic cotton yarn.

A little goes a long way with this beautiful, variegated cotton yarn with a twist.

Add color, texture and interest to your projects with our new Caterpillar Cotton.

Lovely and light weight - perfect for weaving, knitting and crochet - so soft and great to work with.

Use alone or in combination with any of our solid-color cottons.

Caterpillar Cotton creates a knit, woven or crochet fabric that is so light and soft, lovely to wear against the skin.

Such a beautiful pop of color!

I love this yarn! Great for both warp and weft. I mix it with heavier weft yarns for a repp look for sturdy table mats. I've woven it on a rigid heddle loom with doubled warp and single weft for amazing runners. And a plain weave all in one color both warp and weft woven with an open sett makes for a gorgeous light shawl for cooler evenings ... so many possibilities! Adding the white to any of the variegated shades makes for fascinating results.


Beautiful, soft cotton. The variegated colors make plain-weave look complex. Added a pickup pattern to give even more texture. Jodi is always so helpful making choices.
