Description

Eco Baby Cocoon Kit

Sizes: 20" L x 20" around (top)-16"(bottom) or 20" L x 20" around

Please note that the picture is of the Marshmallow. Marshmallow is undyed organic cotton and is the purest option for baby's skin. To view all the color options click on the Mariposa photo within the yarn product category.

This design rolls or cuffs to the desired length to take the guess work out of the newborns size. When cuffing the cocoon (pictured) it provides even more insulation and warmth.

The Ultra Soft Mariposa Organic Cotton Yarn inspired us to create this beautiful Eco Baby Cocoon available in a wide range of color options.

This is a very easy & fun knitting project. The Mariposa is worked double (2 strands together) on a #13 needle. The pattern supports working in the round on a circular & sock needles or on straight needles.

The New Pakucho Andean Mist Colors come in 18 Beautiful & Colorfast Botanically Dyed Colors in Hand Brushed Long Staple Organic Pima Cotton Flamme. To see the colors available go to the worsted flamme yarn section of the website. Color combinations will be pictured soon.

All Vegan color options are marked with **. Due to the use of cochineal, especially in the pinks and purple, it makes a percentage of the colors non-Vegan.

Botanical Information

Not only is this kit organic BUT the pattern is printed on 100% Post Consumer Waste Paper & Hemp. The packaging is 100% Biodegradable & Sustainable Clear Cellulose. Absolutely no plastic! It is the perfect eco knitting kit.

Also included in this kit is a plantable gift tag that can grow wildflowers when planted. It is adorned with a hand spun hemp cord & recycled glass bead.

When dried in a machine there can be a one time 10-15% shrinkage in length. Kits sometimes have yarn left over so that you have the option to lengthen the cocoon if you prefer. To avoid shrinkage wash in cool water, gentle soap, on the gentle cycle setting, in a lingerie bag and lay out to dry.

Knitting Needles are optional. The needle size used are #13 for the average knitter. See the Bamboo Knitting Needles page. The Crystal palace bamboo needles work like a dream with the organic cotton yarn.
