There is a gift baby project on my horizon, and I wanted to try making a cotton yarn for it. So I ordered some coyote cotton from Kendig Cottage.
This is a naturally colored cotton that has been developed to be fire resistant.
The color is quite a nice reddish brown.
I figured swatching was a must, since I didn't want it to fall apart in the washing machine. So I spun and plied, and knitted a swatch directly from the spindle that went directly to the washing machine. The verdict? I am happy. This is so soft, and there was no pilling. The dimensions of the swatch changed very little, just a slight gain in width.
The baby sweater project has a green light now!
Almost done with Chapeau Marnier.
