We Are Knitters – Pima Cotton

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!

  1. OOOH I cannot wait to see how this plays out. I also love Pima cotton – it really does have a nice sheen to it. And you picked a great color!

  2. Lovely! Those orangey-pink roses with that blue yarn is such a beautiful colour combo!

  3. This is such a great color, it’ll be wonderful to wear with jeans.

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

  5. 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 🙂

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. Alina,
    Every time I stop by, you have some new delicious texture to enjoy! Thanks for the info about this yarn!
