The Scheepjes Catona is a pure cotton which has been mercerised, a process that smooths and strengthens the fibres. We love this because it means the yarn has an incredible silk-like lustre, which not only makes it a dream to wear and work with, you also get an even tension and great stitch definition.
Catona is a versatile weight, ranging from a 4ply to a sport weight depending what needle or hook you use. Cotton is often notorious for splitting, but we are happy to report that our swatching had been stress free as the smooth fibres have remained neatly twisted and easy to work with.
