Bockens 24/2 cotton is a strong unmercerized combed cotton made from an Egyptian long staple fiber that is easy to work with and super soft. This fine yarn is strong enough to use in both warp and weft. This is an excellent choice for lightweight summer scarves and shawls and fine yardage. We currently only have this available in natural and bleached. This means that these can also be used for your hand dying explorations such as ikat, woven shibori, or hand painting warps and wefts.
