We Are Knitters Pima Cotton

Happy Sunday! Today I would love to share with you one more visual yarn story that I created for the review of Pima Cotton by We Are Knitters. I worked with pima cotton before and I can definitely say this is the best type of cotton for me – it is so incredibly soft, light and silky. I love its slight sheen that adds depth and luxurious feel to the fabric.

The pima cotton is loosely spun and feels very light to the touch. It creates a wonderful crisp stitch definition that works perfect for basic stitch patterns. I am casting on for a simple light summer sweater – I haven’t made any notes, I will just keep knitting and see where it brings me. This is the best way for me to experiment on the needles!

From what I can see so far the yardage is very generous in the skein and I have a feeling I will have enough for more than one project! I’ll see what I will have left at the end and experiment on my knitting machine with it.

For this review I chose Denim shade out of 25 available colors – basically slightly faded grey/blue.Great choice for those who wants to add more color into their knitting, but still stick to a neutral soft palette.

I’ll be knitting away and hopefully share the results of my experiment soon! Thank you, We Are Knitters, for creating such an inspiring yarn! At the end of this knitting story, I will organize a giveaway for you. You can subscribe to my blog to receive the latest giveaways announcements and never miss them!

    I’m so drowned to this color lately and I agree that orange works amazing with it.
    Also, why haven’t you kept notes?!?!

    I am glad you like the color combo, Zeta! I didn’t prepare the notes before, but make some random scribbles just in case somebody will like my experiment 🙂

    I hardly ever work with cotton, but you are definitely tempting me with this post!

      Cotton was my first fiber love 🙂 Keep coming back to it every year! Glad you are inspired, Tahnee!

    Love the color that you chose. It’s been a while since I’ve knitted with cotton yarn. Such a pretty fabric and perfect for the hotter months of summer. Love that you are improvising as you go along!

      Thank you so much! Love to see it growing on the needles!

    Alina I wanted to knit for a friend of mine who is allergic to wool. This may be a nice alternative. Thanks for the idea.
