Organic Cottonwood is a wonderfully soft DK weight yarn. Its 100% certified organic cotton is dyed with organic dyes in a certified organic process. When Cottonwood is being dyed, no non-organic yarn is allowed in the dye house, the better to preserve its purity. To further protect its quality, the yarn is shipped to the retailer in its own paperboard box, not plastic. This is a cotton you can feel good about using.
