Core spun yarn is when we wrap fibre around a core strand (we use cotton). This is a good way to use up fibres that vary in staple length, are more coarse, or are otherwise not suitable for high quality yarns. The result is a unique style of very heavy yarn at about half an inch in diameter. This is a hard wearing yarn suitable for rugs, either woven or hooked, crocheted, braided or knit. It also makes for dramatic statement accessory pieces. Available in a variety of colours and patterns, this yarn can be used in endlessly imaginative ways.
