New fun Lilli Mix shades!
Lilli is a round tube yarn made from recycled cotton. It is excellent for crocheting and it is very popular for crocheting rugs and baskets. Lilli is about 7 mm wide when squeezed flat. Lilli is a rounder tube yarn than Eko Tube Yarn and thicker than Mini Tube Yarn. Just like our other tube yarns made from recycled cotton, Lilli is made from a knitted tube. The yarn for making the knitted tube comes from recycled cotton, which is first sorted by colors and then mixed again to create all the shades available in Lilli. This way there is no need to dye the yarn during the manufacturing process.
Additionally, because Lilli is a knitted tube yarn, it is much more even in thickness than for example T-shirt yarns that are cut from cotton tricot fabrics.
Note: color variations between different dye lots occur and products from different lots may vary, due to the use of a recycled material. If you plan to use Lilli for weaving, we recommend that you wash the yarn before use. In that case, it's easiest to buy the yarn in hanks. The cotton tube yarn shrinks about 15-20% in the wash.
