Loopy Mango Big Cotton Yarn

100% Cotton

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. Cotton is a plant fiber, making Big Cotton yarn 100% vegan. 

This 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

Recommended needle size: US 15 (10 mm), US 19 (15 mm), US 35 (19 mm)

Care: hand wash cold water and lay flat to dry (it is ok to tumble dry garments made with this yarn - it will eliminate a lot of shedding - test by making a small swatch with leftover yarn and washing and drying it).

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!
