Description

Pakucho Certified Organic Flamme Worsted Cotton Yarn

This cone weighs approx. 2 lbs. 2.8 ozs. (just under 1 kg)

For an average comparison 1 kg equals 2 lbs. and 3.2 oz.. 1 kg is equal to 20 hanks which is 1460 yds.

If you want this sport weight flamme yarn in large quantity, with a lot less knots and for bulk pricing then buying a cone is the best option & value.

If you are interested in more than 1 cone please contact us and we can arrange for more listings. The cones can and do vary in weight.

The shipping weight above includes the box and packaging that the cone ships with.

The average needle used is #8 - #10 (4.5 - 3.5 sts) = 1").

This yarn knits up slightly chunky on a #10, BUT #8- 9 is a more normal worsted gauge. The yarn is made up of 2 roving strands twisted together to form a thick and thin alternating texture. Because this is color~grown yarn it can sometimes shrink between 10-15% in length. If you are unsure, I would launder a sample first when doing a project. The shrinkage only occurs when you machine dry it and the color gets deeper the more times you machine dry it. If you want the color to stay the same with no shrinkage, either machine wash or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

This is a beautiful, soft, thick & thin flamme rovings twisted together. This yarn like most organic cotton does not have a chemical finishing like conventional cotton so it not smooth and polished, but natural and rustic.

NOTE: The colors are more muted then the standard Pakucho yarns, especially the greens. This allows you to keep the color as is or deepen it with hot and/or machine drying. You have the choice!
