Our Cotton Pure On A Cone has more than 2500 yards (that’s ten skeins worth!), so you can knit the main color of this blanket without ever having to cut or rejoin your yarn. Translation: Many fewer ends to weave in!

Cotton Pure On A Cone is 100% organically grown cotton with an unmercerized finish, making it soft, absorbent and pleasantly matte. It is also machine wash- and dryable!
