Yarn fact: the ancient Peruvians believed that cotton was puffs of cloud that fell to earth as a gift from the gods. Now sadly, our Shiny Happy Cotton’s not made from cloud, but it’s soft and full of lustre thanks to Peru’s basking sun and fertile soil.
Soft and sleek, with beautiful drape, Shiny Happy Cotton is the perfect yarn for the warmer months.
Shiny Happy Cotton is the perfect yarn for those summer knits – or year-round wardrobe classics. Use it for sweaters, dresses and accessories – and of course, it's ideal for baby and kids wear.

Tension and Ply
The Ply information provided on this website is a guide only.
We recommend, the most accurate way to begin when hand knitting is to follow the instructions for each yarn/pattern and knit a tension square.
