Description

Add a touch of elegance to your next knitting or crocheting project with this gorgeous lilac purple sport weight yarn from JubileeYarn. Made from a luxuriously soft blend of 50% cotton and 50% bamboo rayon, this yarn has a beautiful sheen and drape that lends itself perfectly to lightweight garments, accessories, and home décor pieces.

Vibrant Lilac Purple Color

The rich lilac purple hue of this yarn is so vibrant and eye-catching. It’s a medium purple tone that leans slightly blue, with just a hint of pink undertones. The color is bright without being overpowering. It will add a pop of color to any project.

Ideal Sport Weight and Yardage

This yarn is classified as a sport weight, also known as category 2 fine. Each skein weighs 50 grams and measures 134 yards in length. The sport weight gauge creates a lighter drape and is ideal for warmer weather knits and crochet pieces like lightweight sweaters, scarves, shawls, tops, and more. The generous yardage also ensures you’ll have plenty of yarn for even larger projects.

Soft Cotton and Bamboo Rayon Blend

A cotton and bamboo blend gives this yarn unbeatable softness with beautiful drape and sheen. The cotton lends breathability and comfort. Bamboo rayon comes from renewable bamboo sources and adds luminosity, fluidity, and subtle luster. The two fibers combined create a yarn that’s soft and silky smooth to the touch.

Great for Any Knit or Crochet Project

This smooth sport weight yarn is the perfect choice for nearly any knitting or crochet pattern. The cotton/bamboo blend provides the right amount of structure and elasticity to avoid splitting or shredding during stitching. It has great stitch definition too. Use it to create scarves, cowls, sweaters, cardigans, tops, dresses, blankets, baby items, accessories, home décor, and more.

Care Instructions

Like most cotton and rayon blends, this yarn requires gentle care. Machine wash in lukewarm water with a mild detergent using the delicate cycle. To preserve the yarn’s shape and softness, lay flat to dry in the shade. Do not wring, iron, bleach, or use fabric softeners.
