Bio-Sesia Organic Cotton

This lovely 100% organic cotton is recommended at 7 sts/inch on US 3 (fingering weight) but I knit it up on a size 6 needle to knit Ashburn (Ravelry pattern) Shawl shown below at 5.5 sts/inch in garter stitch.

I confess that I usually don't enjoy knitting cottons, but this was easy on the hands and the shawl has a great weight/drape/gauge for a summer shawl. I even enjoyed knitting this cotton!

Gorgeous hand and terrific value.

And in 2016, they introduced Bio Bimbo - same great organic cotton with long repeat color changes! These are $1 more per ball, but same great yardage. I knit a baby hat using 1/2 skein.
