Egyptian Giza cotton is one of the best and most appreciated kinds of cotton worldwide. This kind of Egyptian cotton is harvested in the Nile Delta, whose environmental conditions influence the final cotton quality: the amount of sunlight, the environmental humidity, and the nutrient-rich soil stimulates this particular cotton specimen growth. Giza cotton has superior qualities in softness, breathability, and moisture absorption, making Anchor Creativa 8ply a cotton yarn specially indicated for knitting summer garments for children and adults alike.
Anchor Creativa 8ply is available in 72 different solid colors. Dyes used by Anchor adhere to Global fastness standards to guarantee that skein colors keep remaining the same in the finished garments. However, it is possible, particularly with dark colors, that excess dye stays on the thread. To minimize any potential bleeding of excess dyestuff, Anchor suggests always wash the cotton garments at the hottest temperature possible with a large amount of water.
Anchor Creativa 8ply has the same quality as Anchor Creativa Fino and Anchor Creativa Denim, but it is slightly thicker, which will allow you to work with bigger needles.
Make colorful dresses for children, comfortable sweaters for babies, or cool t-shirts and tops for the summer. Anchor Creativa 8ply is a versatile cotton yarn that will look amazing in your summer projects, both knit and crochet.
