10/2 unmercerized cotton is a classic yarn for dish towels and a traditional choice for the warp and tabby weft on overshot blankets. It is easy-care as long as any fringe is braided or twisted. It has a matte finish and is quite absorbent. This yarn is open end spun, which makes it very economical but not as strong as ring spun yarn. You can use it for warp as long as you make sure your warp is very evenly tensioned. For a stronger 10/2 natural cotton, see our Warp Twist yarn from Henry's Attic.
