This is a new addition to the popular Cumulus line of yarns from Jupiter Moon Farms. Cumulus Rainbow has the same yarn base, but adds beautiful colour gradients to make your soft cotton projects more exciting.
If you’ve already worked with Cumulus, you know how luscious it is. Cotton yarns are sometimes disappointing – they look and feel great in the skein, but end up feeling hard, even stringy, when knitted up. Not Cumulus!
Juniper Moon Farms brag about the long staple length of the Israeli Mako cotton they use for this yarn, and it’s justified. That extra staple length allows them to spin this yarn thicker and with more loft than lesser quality cotton fibre. The result is a yarn that’s thick and bouncy, but with a smooth surface that makes it soft enough for the most sensitive skin. It also holds up well to wash and wear.
Nina has a new design based on this yarn (Gallery pictures & pattern coming soon!), and there is additional pattern support from the yarn distributor, like this beautiful, but simple, Watery Ripples shawl from Vicki Myers.
