Summer Yarn Suggestions

During the summer, you want to choose yarns that have these qualities to keep you cool:

  • Breathable material
  • Strong hold
  • Loose drape
  • Dries quickly

Yarns like bamboo, cotton, and linen or a combination of any of these will make loose fitting, light garments. KnitPal’s Cotton to the Core yarn provides durability and a great drape to any wearable for the summer heat.
