Mako Cotton Yarn | Lion Brand LB Collection


Mako Cotton Yarn is part of the Lion Brand LB Collection. Mako Cotton is prized for its extra-long staple length, which produces the smoothest, strongest cotton fiber available. It is is spun into a chainette construction, which allows for air to pass through the yarn. This creates softer, more lightweight projects than traditional spun cotton yarns.

A mere 50 grams of this CYC 4 yarn has over 125 yards (in comparison, mercerized cotton in a similar gauge has 93 yards/50 grams.) It also lends durability to the yarn and prevents shedding. Luxuriously soft to the touch, LB Collection’s Mako Cotton yarn is perfect for lightweight summer tops, cozy après beach hoodies, and any kid or baby’s project. (They’ll never be able to complain that what you make them is too itchy again.) In a fun palette of classics and brights, Mako Cotton will be your go-to cotton for all your trans-seasonal projects. So go make something out of Mako Cotton!

Mako Cotton Yarn | Lion Brand LB Collection I don't usually like to use cotton as it usually splits and or is very heavy. This does neither. It's light and airy and fun to use! I'll be ordering more!
