Cottonsmooth Like Butter (and there's a shade like butter, too!)

A little while ago a new yarn graced our shelves, the King Cole Cottonsmooth DK, and we literally haven't shut up about it since. As we speak Eleanor is talking about it to a customer, if that shows you how popular it is. 

It's 100% mercerised cotton, making it ridiculously silky and absolutely gorgeous to work with. Eleanor knitted a shop sample, a tank top (pictured) and every now and then I just go to stroke it because... smooth. So smooth. It's got a pretty standard yardage, 218yds per 100g, so a good few balls will make your garment and you won't need to worry about running out.

Cotton Top (of the Pile) DK
It's no secret that we adore cotton yarn in this shop. Whether it's 100% cotton or a cotton blend there is always something that gives it just that heavenly drape and super-soft feel. It's so good for summer, but I wear it in the winter too just because I can't resist it.
