Cloud Cotton is a soft, comfortable, easy to knit and crochet yarn that you’ll love to use all year. The yarn 100% Organic, which is great because cotton is one of the most pesticide dependent crops in the world. It comes is a variety of dyed colours (commercial dyes used, not ‘natural’ ones), as well as a couple of undyed, natural shades. It compares with Misti Alpaca’s defunct Pima Cotton & Silk, but a closer contemporary might be Blue Sky Alpaca’s Dyed Cotton and/or Organic Cotton, which rings in at $3 more per skein than Cloud Cotton. (Do they come from the same mill? I can’t say, but these things do happen). Why is it less expensive? Cloud Cotton is imported directly by the distributor, so it isn’t branded, marketed, and advertised, thus reducing the price – kind of like Costco’s Kirkland brand, it’s the same great product, but without the seductive packaging and price.
