The ancient Peruvians believed that cotton was like fragments of cloud fallen to earth to clothe the people in the land of the Incas – a gift from their gods. And who can argue when you have a yarn that is as soft as this? Shiny Happy Cotton yarn’s unique softness and lustre are the result of Peru’s sunshine and fertile soils where it is grown.
Just in time for the New Zealand spring and summer, we’ve stocked up on this yarn made from Peruvian cotton. It’s perfect for tank top and T-shirt style knits, dresses, and even light sweaters for the evening. It’s great for crochet projects, too. It works especially well with garter stitch, moss stitch and stocking stitch. You will love the way this drapes!
