Big Cotton 100 gram
Loopy Mango Big Cotton Yarn
48 yards (43 m) 3.5 oz. (100 g)
Made In Italy.
This yarn is great for people with wool allergies and for warmer climate. Since cotton is a plant fiber, Big Cotton yarn is 100% vegan.
This soft chunky cotton yarn is perfect for quick projects - 1 or 2 balls is enough for a beanie, 3 for a fringe scarf, 8 for a long vest, 5 for a baby blanket. To see all Loopy Mango projects with this yarn see our Big Cotton DIY kits.
Making a larger project? Big Cotton is also available in cones! One cone is equal to 5 balls of Big Cotton. Big Cotton 500g Cone
One ball knits up in 30-60 minutes.
Please note - if you have purchased Big Cotton prior to July 2017 - our new Big Cotton is slightly different - it's lighter in weight, softer and silkier to the touch. All of our patterns had to be slightly adjusted and some projects may require different amounts of yarn. If you have purchased a DIY kit from us in the past and are using the same pattern and are not sure if it's an updated version just email us a copy of what you have and we will send you an updated version if necessary.
Recommended needle size: US 15 (10 mm), US 19 (15 mm), US 36 (20 mm).
Care: hand wash cold water and lay flat to dry.
Blanket Measurements and Skeins Needed (Using size 19 needle):
28'' x 34'' 500g of Big Cotton (Big Cotton Baby Blanket)
28'' x 40'' 600g of Big Cotton (Nantucket style)
30'' x 50'' 800g of Big Cotton (Montauk style)
Five skeins of Big Cotton will make a throw that's 28'' x 34'' (70cm x 76cm) so that's 28 times 34, so 952 square inches (70 times 76 = 5320 square cm). You will then divide 952 by 5 (we had 5 skeins), which gives us 190 square inches per skein. So, if you want to make, for example, 28'' x 40'' blanket you need to multiply 28 by 40 which gives you 1120 and divide that number by 190, so 5.8 (6) skeins - 600g of Big Cotton!
