Yumbrel DK Hand Painted

Yumbrel 100% combed cotton yarn by Araucania. 


Araucania yarns are inspired by ancient South American crafts which were often created using hand-painted natural yarns. Each hank is different! Its individual beauty emerges as the artisan blends color in the kettle to create several unique shades.

Combed cotton is softer than regular cotton because it doesn't have any impurities or short protruding threads, and it is stronger than regular cotton because the combing process removes short fibres, which are prone to breakage. After combing, the straightened fibres join together more tightly, leading to less fraying and unraveling.

These benefits plus the additional work required during the manufacturing process makes combed cotton more expensive and luxurious than regular cotton. Fine knitted and woven fabrics used for high-quality home textiles, garments, blouses, shirts and T-shirts are often made of combed cotton.
