Gepard CottonWool 3 Organic
CottonWool 3 is GOTS certified organic cotton and wool
Yardage: 50 g = 233 m, Needle size: 3-3½ mm
CottonWool consists of extra fine merino lambswool and extra fine cotton; completely carded and spun together. It is very soft and combines the insulating and moisture absorbing properties of the wool with the quickly drying cotton that transports moisture away from the skin. The yarn is perfect for all-weather shirts and sweaters for both men and women, but especially children. Small children's bodies are not as good at regulating bodytemperature through their skin and therefore, an insulating - but never hot nor cold - yarn is perfect. A shirt in CottonWool 3 can be worn all year round - both indoors and outdoors.
The colour chart comes with both fashion colours and dusty pastels - more than 30 beautiful colours which are easy to match in stripes and patterns.
Package: 10 skeins of 50g pr. color you order
Wash Cotton Wool 3 at 25-30°C, do not soak. Dry flat.
CottonWool 3 has been treated against shrinking and felting. This means that you can wash your work at up to 30°C. The antishrinkage treatment is not the same as superwash but in stead a treatment using nothing but regular table salt.
Know your washing machine! All washing machines wash in yheir own way, even when the cycles have identical names. We recommend washing a small sample when uncertain of, for example, the wool cycle on your machine.
