Almina 4Ply Cotton mercerised cotton
50g balls in plain and shaded colours - Approx 169 metres.
This thread is quality European Madame Tricote "Almina".
This thread is supplied in a 50g hank so it has the following advantages:
less tangles as you are able to use the thread from the middle of the ball;
less bulk as there is no cardboard/plastic cone;
less postage cost as we can fit more than twice as many balls in a packet as the other 4ply threads.
Drop down list provides colours in numerical order.

This was my first online yarn order and i was not disappointed. I have to agree with previous comments that it looks a bit shiny with a silky feel. I made a baby dress with this yarn and it came out gorgeous with wonderful feedback.

I love love love this yarn.
I bought 80 balls in white to make an heirloom bedspread over the next few years. I knit a test square first and washed and pinned it out. I have been looking for years for a beautiful cotton to buy to make a bedspread. I didn't want to buy something inferior if I was going to commit to such a big project.
This cotton has such beautiful stitch definition and sheen. It looks even a little silky.
I have also bought some skeins to make a leaf pram blanket in cream. Won 1st prize after entering it into my CWA District Annual Competition.
