>Cotton Classic Lite

>For decades the cornerstone of the Tahki Yarn collection has been the Cotton Classic family; first Cotton Classic, the long-time DK weight favorite, and later Cotton Classic II, the worsted weight big sister.  For as many decades I have been waiting for the little sister to be born.  Congratulations, it’s a sport weight!

New this season, Tahki Cotton Classic Lite is everything I could want in a cotton yarn; it is a versatile, crochet-friendly sport weight, comes in a huge palette of brilliant mercerized cotton colors, features a sturdy Z-twist cable construction, with a non-pilling, non-shedding, smooth drape, is sensibly priced and easy care.

I think I’m missing a shade or two, but you get the picture.  Many cool colors are available.  Here’s a look at the label, so I don’t have to type out the specs:

Look for a plethora of crochet designs featuring Cotton Classic Lite coming out for spring and summer 2010, including a new crochet book from Tahki titled City Crochet.  This top, Paris Tunic, is one of the designs I contributed.

Cotton Classic Lite substitutes beautifully for a number of other yarns, and works for most sport weight applications.  For example, I would swap it as a classier step up from Patons Grace or Red Heart Lustersheen, I’d use it as a non-wool alternative to medium sport weight sock yarns, or as a more affordable sub for super high-end fibers like Tilli Tomas silk Plie.
