Monte Cristo is a lofty, soft cotton yarn made from a trademarked cotton variation called Sipan Cotton. It has a longer and finer staple, leading to a yarn that is stronger, more absorbant, and more durable, with a soft hand and good lustre. The construction of this yarn makes it fluffy and soft rather than sleek, but the hand is very nice, whether the fabric is woven or knitted. It takes dye well, so don't be afraid to try a fiber reactive dye like Procion.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process. (If you will be dyeing this yarn, it is best to keep it in its reeled hank.)
