I’m so excited to announce that it’s finally time to “officially” announce the latest, co-branded yarn in my line: Bernat Cotton-ish by Vickie Howell!

Bernat Cotton-ish by Vickie Howell (just Cotton-ish, for short), is a lightweight, 55% cotton/45% acrylic blend with a tight twist to give it a spring-y hand. It’s lovely, airy drape is perfect for a variety of items including baby layette, toddler clothing, women’s tops, lacy shawls, summer beanies, cafe curtains and placemats.

Cotton-ish comes in the rich, saturated colors that are signature to my modern-meets-retro-chic aesthetic. While creating this line, I took to heart the frequent requests I get from mom stitchers who are sick of traditional pastels for babies. Whether you’re making something for infant, adult or home, the palette of this line speaks to the trend of mixing bold color with cool neutrals. Each color was hand-picked by me -- using everything from fabric to found objects as inspiration -- and named after something cotton-related (you know how I love a theme!)

If you’re a fan of my other yarn, Sheep(ish) but prefer not to work with wool during the warmer months, then Cotton-ish is for you. It has a tight twist, yet it’s smooth & sproing-y!
