Cotton Aran?

Postby karenandgeorgia » Sun Mar 03, 2013 6:54 pm

Looking for a budget way of knitting for baby, all this custom wool is gorgeous but expensive for how long it will fit for.
Does anyone have suggestions of soft aran that knits up nicely at a more affordable price for a few everyday sweaters/cardigans? I'm thinking some with a cotton content may be nice for summer :D

Adriafil and artesano are both lovely yarns.

I'm not sure why mainstream variegated yarns there are but there are plenty of lovely plain yarns which are really good value

Wow that yarn is fab, last time I looked for cotton it was all really expensive, as much as wool, and in some cases more! I think you should get some and let us know how it is!! They have some fab colours as well :) I may have to order some if it is nice would love a cotton cardi :)
