Khadi cotton yarn, handspun worsted weight yarn. Super soft. Organic cotton yarn.
Khadi cotton yarn is not like your usual cotton yarns it is a whole movement!
Our new Khadi cotton yarn has been spun where the cotton grows. The spinners work alongside the farmers who produce this cotton. In these farms there are no pestisides used so therefore our handspun cotton yarn has that organic element. We are very proud of this worsted weight cotton yarn because it has been handspun for us by a group of village women in India and is the softest cotton I know. It is a dream to work with!
The khadi movement was started by Ghandi in the 1920's to promote an ideology, an idea that the Indians could be self reliant on cotton and be free from foreign cloth and clothing.
Ghandi began promoting the spinning of cotton yarn using a charka to support self reliance and rural self employment amongst women in villages. The result khaki cotton yarn. This self reliance continues to this day, which Yarn Yarn has been promoting for years.
The resulting cotton yarn is deliciously soft like silk. This is a by far the most luxurious cotton yarn ever!
This Khadi cotton yarn doubled up and makes the most luxurious sweater, hat, throw, shawl and other such luxury items. Knit, crochet, weave. Ethical, sustainable and certainly soft. A unique artisan yarn. This cotton is grown in the villages where these women spin. It truly is a remarkable yarn!
