The widely popular Scheepjes Catona yarns have become a go-to yarn for many crafters. Made from 100% Mercerised Cotton, this Fingering weight yarn (4 Ply) is naturally breathable and characterised by a soft, delicate sheen and a smooth and supple touch. Create a range of garments, amigurumi, accessories, homeware items and toys for kids with this indispensable yarn! Being EN71-3 certified, Catona is safe to use by those with a sensitive touch such as babies or children, not to mention that this yarn is produced using recycled waste water, offering a more sustainable choice as well for eco conscious crafters. Available in an enormous range of 109 colours, enjoy endless colour combinations with Scheepjes Catona. Recommended needle/hook size is 2.50-3.50mm (or 2mm for amigurumi).
I just love using the Scheepjes cotton - Stone Washed and Catona. I am knitting the Animal Friends by Louise Crowther and have done 9 of a collection of 13. I have been so pleased to be able to access the cotton from within New Zealand.
