This is HiKoo's admired blend of cotton, viscose from bamboo, silk, and elastic nylon in a versatile DK weight.
The soft, machine washable blend makes for a vast range of possibilities from summer tops, to wool-free sweaters, blankets, and accessories. It is a great substitute option for HiKoo's Simplicity, and comes in a wide range of colors to please any palette.
We carry this yarn not only because it's really nice, but also to support people making Knitted Knockers. This yarn is approved for the Knitted Knockers program and recommended for their knitting patterns..
Knitted Knockers is a volunteer program in which comfortable, lightweight, washable prosthetic breasts are made for people who have undergone mastectomies. They also work to pair up knitters and crocheters with individuals, hospitals and doctors who need them.
We are happy to print a knocker pattern for you and send it with your yarn to help support your effort! Just send an email to Tracy letting her know that you'd like a pattern. Just include details like whether you are knitting and/or crocheting. If you plan to knit, just let her know preferences such as top-down, bottom-up, circular needles, double-pointed needles, etc.
