As the weather gets warmer, we often make the switch to working on smaller, light-weight projects like market totes, kitchen items, and lacy shrugs.  Kitchen Cotton is a great summer yarn to use when it’s too warm for wool. It’s made of 100% cotton that’s super absorbent, and exceptionally durable – perfect for kitchen and bath accessories that need to be more sturdy.

Best of all, it’s on sale at 15% off for the month of June.

See below for our most popular Kitchen Cotton projects!
