DK Cotton - from DanDoh
The thick and thin characteristic of this 100% cotton yarn makes for a unique fabric. The yarn has a special coating that aids in moisture absorption and evaporation to keep you cool in warm weather.
Needles: Wood or bamboo needles are recommended when working with DK Cotton yarn. The special coating of Cotton DK yarn can make the yarn slippery to work with. Wood or bamboo needles will grip the yarn better so the stitches stay on your needles.
Blocking: Wet blocking is recommended, then lay flat to dry. You can tumble dry without heat a couple of minutes if you feel the fabric is too stiff. Only do this a few minutes to retain the coating around the yarn.

Put Up: 1.76 oz / 50 g hank. Hanks must be wound prior to knitting with them. However, plant fibers do not ship well once wound into a ball - the ball tends to fall apart and tangle en route. As such, we strongly recommend waiting to wind this yarn at home just before you work with it. If you want to risk it, though, you can add yarn winding to your order here.
