Paris | Drops
- HOW IT'S MADE
- PROJECT IDEAS
This worsted weight cotton is such a versatile yarn for all sorts of projects. Made of 100% non-mercerized combed cotton, Paris is a soft yarn with a matte texture that's easy to work with and feels lovely on the skin.
Cotton has many benefits - it's soft enough for baby items, naturally machine-washable and tumble-dry safe, as well as cooling, breathable, and quick-drying in hot weather. Cotton yarns don't have much elasticity, so they can be harder on the hands, but you end up with a gorgeous drapey fabric that's perfect for the summer!
