Simply Cotton Worsted Weight Yarn by Knit Picks — A 100% Organic Cotton Yarn

“Simply Cotton Worsted” is a 100% organic cotton yarn that an online retailer known as “Knit Picks” manufactures. The yarn is available in two three weights; the worsted weight version is the subject of this yarn review, and there’s also a sport weight version of the yarn available. Update: There’s now a fingering weight available, too. I haven’t tried it yet.

It’s exciting to think about all the design possibilities you have at your fingertips with three different yarn weights available. If you like making coordinating sets of items and you need worsted weight yarns for some of the items and sport weight yarns for the others, this yarn is an outstanding choice for that.

Yarn Specifications

The Simply Cotton Color Palette — In the past, Knit Picks used to make a wonderful variety of heathered and natural colors of this yarn available. The dyed colorways have been discontinued. Last time I checked, the natural / undyed color with the color name “Marshmallow” was the only one available.

Price I Paid for the Yarn — $4.99 and $5.99 US Dollars (There were two different prices; the higher price was for the dyed yarn colors when they were previously available, and the lower price is for the natural “Marshmallow” color.)

Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price for the Yarn — This is the same price I paid; Knit Picks is actually both the manufacturer and the retailer.

Fiber Content — 100% organic cotton

Suggested Crochet Hook Size — I – K hooks (5.5 mm-6.5 mm)

Suggested Gauge for Crochet — 11–14 sc = 4” on I – K hooks (5.5 mm-6.5 mm)

Suggested Knitting Needle Size — #7-8 needles (4.5mm – 5.0mm)

Suggested Gauge for Knitting — 4.5 sts = 1″ on #7-8 needles (4.5mm – 5.0mm)

Care Instructions — Unlike some of the other organic cotton yarns I’ve seen for sale, this yarn can be machine washed and tumble dried. WOOHOO! That makes it an outstanding choice for all kinds of things ranging from kitchen projects to baby items and kids’ clothes.

Yarn Quality:

I’ve been exceptionally pleased with the quality of Simply Cotton yarn. So far, I’ve used five different balls of it, and I’ve only found one flaw between all five. That’s outstanding.

Yarn Softness:

Simply Cotton yarn is incredibly soft. It’s delightful to touch and lovely to work with.
