Fiber of the Week - April 28, 2010

Your faithful blogger begged Rob for a cotton for Fiber of the Week, and he came through as always. This is Baby Cotton by Ella Rae; the fiber content is actually 88% cotton and 12% nylon for that "sproing" that cotton alone just doesn't have. I went to Ravelry to see what people had made from this yarn. Certainly there were baby hats, sweaters, booties and toys, but I also found sweaters, tanks, shrugs and hats for adults. This is a great summer yarn and available in 19 colors, some of which are not "babyish" at all, unless your name is Morticia Addams and you dress your little ones in Ink black. But I digress - must mention that this yarn is 20% off this week.

The specs:
Fiber: 88% Cotton, 12%Nylon
50g ball
Yardage: 110
Stitches: 5.5
Needle size: 6
DK Weight

This yarn will be on sale midday until Wednesday, May 5. Surprise spring cleaning sales still popping up at Facebook.
