Katia Fair Cotton are 100% organic cotton skeins.
Currently, cotton is the largest non-food agricultural product and the most widely used natural textile fiber globally. This vegetable fiber is soft, strong, and transpirable, absorbing the skin's sweat and keeping cool the person wearing the garment. That makes that garments made with Katia Fair Cotton are ideal for the summer and keep us warm in winter. That makes Katia Fair Cotton a versatile yarn, perfect for those who can not or do not want to wear wool, alpaca, and other animal origin fibers.
Cotton is also a fiber that withstands high temperatures, so garments woven with this thread are easy to maintain and can be machine washed at 60ºC.
These skeins in large meterage cake format are made of organic cotton. But what does it mean organic cotton? It means that the cotton in Katia Fair Cotton skeins has been cultivated without any pesticides or synthetic chemical fertilizers, aside from the ones allowed by the certified organic labeling. That contributes to the fact that cultivated soils are not degraded, which are still fertile for growing food, that the waters are not polluted, and that the growing area's biodiversity and biological cycles are preserved. It also affects the health of cotton farmers, who have a toxic-free working environment.
In summary, organic cotton is a natural fiber that has the same quality as conventional cotton, but it is more environmentally friendly.
Katia Fair Cotton is a yarn suitable for sensitive skins and is perfect for knitting baby cardigans, comfortable rompers, and soft blankets. With Katia Fair Cotton, you can also knit summer tops, light dresses, and sweaters for children.
Each yarn ball of Katia Fair Cotton weighs 50 grams and has 155 meters of thread. For making a short-sleeved woman sweater in size L, you will need around 6 yarn balls. Remember that this is only an estimation and that your own tension, chosen stitch, and kind of pattern may modify the calculation. A tension swatch will help you to get a more approximate calculation.
