This yarn is great for people with wool allergies and for warmer climates. Cotton is a plant fiber, making Summer yarn vegan.
Summer is un-mercerized and minimally processed. This means that the yarn has not undergone the chemical process of mercerization, which is often done to create a yarn with more shine and rigidity, minimizing the fiber’s innate elasticity. Instead, this cotton is left in a more natural state- with a soft and supple hand.
Given that this cotton yarn is bulky, un-mercerized, and minimally processed in order to preserve the fiber’s natural softness and elasticity, it can be prone to shedding.
Care: Hand wash or machine wash cold, tumble dry (tumble drying helps with shedding by pulling loose fibers out). Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result.
