Add to Wishlist

Our favorite dishcloth yarn! Nifty Cotton is a multi-plied, worsted weight cotton yarn that possesses optimal strength and durability without sacrificing any of the classic comforts of cotton. This yarn has a high twist and won't split while you knit as many cotton yarns do. Nifty Cotton is a heavy enough weight to make cozy cotton blankets and sweaters, while still being an excellent choice for market bags and backpacks. Fabrics made from this yarn will be comfortable to wear year-round and are naturally breathable, moisture-wicking, and odor resistant. With 34 cheery solid colors available, you can select the color palette that is right for you, whether it is sophisticated neutrals, cheerful brights, soft pastels, or something in-between.

About Cascade:

Bob Dunbadin founded the Cascade Yarns in the late 1980's. From their humble Pioneer Square beginnings in Seattle, Washington, they have moved and expanded, but have never lost their commitment to affordable, high-quality yarns.

In a time when most high-quality yarn was being crafted in Europe, Cascade instead looked to Peru. Cascade has always believed that so long as the materials and spinning equipment were high quality, and the workers well trained and happy, good yarn can come from anywhere.

A family-owned business since the beginning, Cascade is now run by Bob Dunbadin's son Rob and daughter-in-law Shannon. They continue Cascade's mission to offer exceptional quality yarn for an exceptional price.
