Cottolin is a nice blend--a little linen for high absorbency but enough cotton for some stretch in the warp. The resulting fabric is so easy to care for, it is often used for towels, placemats, or clothing because it can stand up to repeated washing. This weight of this cottolin, 22/2, is easy to substitute in projects calling for 8/2 cotton. We also stock large cones of bleached white and natural cottolin, which are more economical and make great background colors. For the large cone of bleached cottolin, click here and for natural cottolin, click here.
If you are matching colors, even the best catalog or website image can be limited. To know the look and feel of the yarn, nothing beats having an actual piece of it. Our sample card for this yarn shows all of the colors we carry with a snip of each.
