Llama Cotton Grande
I love knitting with chunky yarn, but when it comes to chunky weight cotton, "chunky & cotton" mix like oil & water. The cotton tends to be too heavy and the garment may double in size. Also, cotton doesn't have a lot of give, so knitting with it on big needles isn't easy on your hands.
Along comes Plymouth Llama Cotton Grande! This new chunky weight cotton/llama blend a knitters dream. It feels like cotton and has the added softness and give of llama. Now you can knit using a chunky weight yarn for spring and summer.
