Details

Jeans Cotton is an 8ply 100% cotton Turkish yarn, reminiscent of the denim look.

  • It comes in 50g balls with 140m per ball.
  • A 3-4 mm hook or needles are recommended.(see my observations ⬇️)
  • Gauge is 24 rows by 18 stitches to 10cm x 10cm.
  • There are originally 28 different colourways, 11 of which can be purchased in my online store.
  • The label recommends a warm machine wash.
  • It is labelled as a number 3 weight yarn which is equivalent to a 8ply or dk weight.

My Observations

  • As with many of the Ice Yarns 100% cottons, this is a very soft yarn and not hard on the hands at all.
  • The construction of the jeans cotton yarn has a light twist to it.
  • I found it to be a little lighter than the average 8ply.
  • I found a bit of splitting happening when using a size 3 or 4 hook, but when I slowed down a bit it was ok and I didn’t have any problem with a size 5 hook which I used for the mesh produce bag. (my smaller hooks are a little pointier than my other hooks, so that may have had something to do with it) I use metal hooks.
  • The Jeans cotton denim yarn would make beautiful accessories or garments and home wares as well.
  • I don’t really think it would be hardy enough for dish cloths or the like.
