6/2 cotton is a work horse yarn, making great hefty towels, colorful placemats, and soft baby blankets. It is unmercerized, so it has a matte finish and a soft, slightly fuzzy hand when compared to mercerized cotton. You can machine wash and dry it as long as the piece is hemmed or has twisted or braided fringe. Items with loose fringe need to be hand washed and dried flat.
This cotton is grown, spun, and dyed in the U. S.!
Cone sizes vary on the 6/2 Cotton, but are generally 0.75 to 0.90 pounds(12-15 oz). The price per cone is calculated based on the actual weight of the cone, calculated using the price per pound given next to the color name in pull-down box above. Please enter the weight that you would like for the quantity and we will match the weight with available cones as closely as possible. Keep in mind that if you enter a quantity of "1", you will most likely receive a quantity of less than a pound. If you have a minimum yardage required, please tell us in the box labeled "Shipping Instructions" during the checkout process.
