Red Heart 100% Cotton

Recommended Posts

I also had 2 skeins of this in my auction buy...guessing by the label maybe mid 80s was when it was purchased. It was bought at Boscovs for $1.99 and the weight is 2-1/2 oz. It is not as thick as peaches n creme or lion brands.

Are there other brands of cotton similar to this yarn size? It only gives knit gauge which is "no 6 needles, 9 stitches stockinette=2".

I can't wait to make up some dishcloths with this...won't be as bulky.

Red Heart now makes a cotton yarn called Creme de laCreme which is lighter than Peaches and Cream etc.  it is like a light worsted.  you can look up the info about it on the red heart site, shopredheart.com may have the best info.  i really like it esp for wash cloths, it has great stitch definition and a smoother feel.  Yours might be the predecessor of it?
