The best of plant and animal fibers come together in Woolen Cotton! The coolness, strength, and shine of Pima cotton and the springiness, warmth, and bounce of Merino wool create a perfect yarn for lightweight projects that can be worn year-round. The resulting fabric is sophisticated and soft, with the feel of your favorite cotton sweater but with the light weight and elasticity of wool. This yarn is perfect for your favorite designs calling for DK-weight yarns, particularly those with textured stitches and cables, which this yarn shows to advantage. Dyed with early autumn knits in mind, Woolen Cotton comes in beautiful jewel tones and elegant neutrals inspired by homesteads and small farms.
Peacoat is an extra-dark navy heather with hints of gray. When placed next to blue Wishing Well Heather, Peacoat almost appears charcoal gray.
Wishing Well is a rich, dark blue heather that feels like looking down into deep water. Pair it with Peacoat Heather for a two-toned look or use it with neutral Shaun Heather.
Reminiscent of cedar needles. This medium green heather features hints of teal and mustard.
Inspired by fields of happy, grass-stained cows, Holstein is a green heather that’s so dark it’s almost black. It’s gorgeous when paired with Cedar Heather for a two-tone look.
A jolly burgundy shade that’s fitting for a gnome’s hat, Garden Gnome blends wine shades with brighter reds to create this heather.
Birdseed Heather is a warm medium brown heathered with yellow. It’s an autumnal shade that looks cozy and inviting.
Hereford is a rich, dark brown heather. It also beautifully enhances other colors like Birdseed Heather, Cedar Heather, or Garden Gnome Heather.
Dolly Heather is a classic, light, cool gray. Hints of medium gray and cream are blended in to add depth.
This medium gray with yellow undertones is reminiscent of granite gargoyles decorating a garden. It’s heathered with charcoal and hints of brown.
Shaun is a light, oatmeal shade created by blending light gray heather and tan. This versatile neutral looks great with almost every color of Woolen Cotton.
This natural, un-dyed fiber is a perfect blank canvas for your creativity--make whatever color your heart desires! This creamy hue is also fabulous on its own as a neutral or paired with other shades. If dyeing, be sure you choose a dye method that works with plant or cellulose fibers.
