Mop Cotton is a heavy, firm cotton that we carry for those looking for a thick cotton weft for weaving. The heavier weight (75/6) is most often used for rugs, while the lighter weight (100/4) makes excellent placemats. While the yarn is 100% cotton, you might find it challenging to dye, as some of the cottonseed oil survives the yarn manufacturing process and may inhibit dye penetration.
The cones of this yarn vary in weight. The 75/6 mop cones are typically 16-17 pounds and the 100/4 cones 14-16 pounds. The unit price above is an estimate, based on common cone sizes. Your price will be adjusted to reflect the actual weight of your cone. Please order the number of cones, not pounds, that you would like to receive. Entering "1" means one cone of approximately 13 pounds, "2" means 2 cones, and so on. If you have a minimum yardage or weight requirement, please tell us about it in the box labeled "shipping instructions" during the checkout process or call us to place your order.
On orders containing one or more cones of Mop Cotton, the shipping charge will not follow the usual shipping schedule, but will be the actual UPS cost to ship the box.
