For those who crave a fingering-weight cotton that's guaranteed to be 100% organic, Rowan has developed Purelife Organic Cotton 4-Ply. A superb complement to its cousin , this finer gauge version gives you more knitting and crochet options for baby outfits, children's clothing and adult accessories and spring/summer items. Organic Cotton 4-Ply is also naturally dyed with plant dyes for a lovely range of pastels and earthtones. These terrific shades give you almost a hand-dyed look because of the slight hue variations inherent with the natural dyeing process. Please Note: By partnering with well-known European expert Biore (also known as bioRe) of Switzerland, Rowan ensures that each ball is completely traceable via the batch number on the ball band.
