Cotton is a very versatile, strong, and breathable fiber. However, cotton can be a bit hard on your hands as you work with it. Kraemer has blended cotton with acrylic in their Tatamy yarn line. The result is a yarn that has many of the qualities of cotton, but is softer and more pleasant to work with.
I am happy to report that testing this yarn has helped to pull me out of my designing slump. Not only do I have an awesome crochet pattern in the works, but I am also writing my very first knitting pattern with Tatamy! Be looking for a sneak peek soon, following by pattern announcements when they are complete and back from testing. I'm grateful to Kraemer for producing yarns that have inspired me to design.
