This yarn is really lovely to work with - strong and supple. Washes great as well!
If you like bold colors, this cotton is for you. It was interesting to see the difference in sewing mercerized cotton vs. un-mercerized cotton such as Beam. I used an upholstery needle to sew the seams and lining on my cell phone bags. The un-mercerized cotton is noticeably stiffer than the mercerized. But the un-mercerized holds up better to the everyday wear that a cell phone purse receives. Is Beam a GOTS-certified organic cotton?
Beam is one of my favorite yarns to use. It is so versatile and the colors are wonderful. I love the jade color and I am planning a kitchen project using it.
This marigold Beam cotton yarn is part of the twill towel set. The finished towels bring welcome sunshine into my November lit kitchen.
Ii love weaving with this yarn.
