Why combine Cotton and Wool?
Because they’re perfect complementswhen you blend them, the strengths of one fiber tempers the weaknesses of the other. Wool’s natural crimp provides strength and elasticity which helps preserve the shape of a stretchy knitted garment. Wool is also lightweight and easily dyed. Cotton takes dye well, too, and helps it stay fast even against sunlight. While cotton and wool are both fibers that breath very well, cotton has the added bonus of feeling cool against the skin. The arrangement of the cellulose in cotton also adds strength and absorbency. The blend of these two fibers makes for a breathable, sturdy year round yarn. And the yarn’s smooth, many-plied round strand shows off stitch patterns.
