Like its name implies, 24/7 cotton is ready for your projects around the clock. Whether you’re interested in making a hat, afghan or bag, you can reach for a ball of this yarn. The sheen imparted by the mercerization process adds depth to the simplest of stitch patterns while the structure of the yarn gives definition to more complex ones.
