Juniper Moon Cumulus Yarn swatch

The sample above features the stitch used in a Cascade baby blanket pattern called Tumbling Blocks. I love how despite the softness of Cumulus, the knits and purls are still well defined.

Juniper Moon Cumulus Yarn

The "oh, spoil me, please" claim Cumulus has is that this is the fabric you want on your body when you step out of the shower. The softness of this cotton cannot be believed. Such a delicate cotton, it is perfect for newborn receiving blankets, amazing for pillows to lay your head on, swim suit cover ups, or just maybe a very special towel for yourself!

The super softness of Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus unbelievable. This lofty-soft yarn is achieved by its chainette construction and its Israeli Mako Cotton. Mako Cotton has a thread length of between 30-34mm for the highest quality cotton fabrics. The resulting light weight fabric creates cables and textured stitches that show well.

Great yarn for capelets and light weight summer sweaters. Knit or crochet both works up beautifully. Sensitive to wool? Cumulus is a great substitution!
