Suave is a real specialty among pure cotton yarns because the fibres are not spun as usual: a kind of cotton mesh tube holds the loose fibres together. In addition, this vegan yarn has organic quality.
To make this unique yarn, the cotton fibres are gathered in India according to the strict ecological and social requirements of GOTS. They are then processed and dyed in Italy.
Suave is a wonderful, easy to handle yarn which can be used to knit and crochet alike.
When ironed, suave knitwear has a smooth surface; when brushed, the knitted fabric becomes soft and fluffy and is reminiscent of cashmere and mohair. This makes Suave a great alternative for vegans and people with allergies to wool!
Suave is not only perfect for light garments such as sweaters and cardigans, but also great for scarves and shawls due to its great drape. Because the yarn is so soft, it can be worn directly on the skin. It is great for children and people with sensitive skin!
Suave - cashmere feeling made from GOTS-certified cotton!
Tip: It is advisable to always order enough yarn for your desired model to ensure you knit your entire project with yarn of the same dye batch. In case of doubt, please make a gauge sample immediately after receiving the yarn. In this way, you can estimate whether you have ordered sufficient quantity and, if necessary, reorder directly.
