Lion Brand 24/7 Yarn

Cotton yarn has great durability and will not wear out easily. It is a good choice for kitchen items.

Choose among 37 colors available in worsted weight with mercerization process giving it incredible colorfastness over time, as well as, a sheen which makes them last longer than regular cottons without sacrificing comfort or quality.

I decided to go with the with the Goldenrod and Tangerine. I like the contrast of the two colors.

The yarn is made of 100% cotton. This cotton is easy to work with.

24/7 Lion Brand Cotton Yarn used for dishcloths and kitchen towels.
