HiKoo Yarn - CoBaSi Plus - White 01
HiKoo CoBaSi is a uniquely constructed yarn. It is composed of COtton, BAmboo, SIlk, and elastic nylon, which is where the name CoBaSi comes from.
This is a cable plied yarn. Each of the 7 plies that make up the HiKoo CoBaSi are comprised of 3 plies, 2 plies of tightly spun fiber, and 1 ply of loosely spun fiber. This gives this yarn excellent stretch, making it ideal for summer wear and form fitting garments. The yarn is also very round, giving superb stitch definition.
HiKoo CoBaSi Plus is a great option for cowls and fingerless mitts for those that have wool allergies. A very breathable yarn, and the plant fiber content makes it light and easy to care for. The elasticity of the yarn makes it ideal for summer sweaters, or hats of young ones that are bound to grow. This is a popular choice for chemo caps, since there is no worry of wool irritation, and it's easy to care for. Market bags are another great project for this yarn, the cotton is strong, and the elastic nylon ensures that you have lots of room to tote around your stuff!
Also available in the CoBaSi line are the CoBaSi, a fingering weight yarn, and the CoBaSi DK, a light DK weight yarn. This makes the CoBaSi line perfect for any projects that need to stretch, and be breathable.
