Mercerised Cotton Yarn

Mercerised Cotton Yarns

Mercerised cotton yarn is the perfect yarn for weavers, knitters and lace makers. The process of mercerisation is a finishing treatment for cellulose fabric and yarn, usually for cotton, that improves dye absorption and tear strength, as well as reduces fabric shrinkage. Eliminating the lint or fuzz from the cotton is part of what gives mercerised cotton its shine. Mercerised yarn is also able to maintain its shine even through several washes and gives a fancier look to finished items.

Mercerised cotton yarns are stronger and more lustrous than ordinary cotton yarns and are the natural choice for your next weaving, knitting or lace project. For knitters, mercerised cotton can be used for a variety of projects, including children's clothing, summer tops, and shawls.

Thread Collective offers cotton yarns from various brands, including Maurice Brassard and Venne. If you can't find what you are looking for, please feel free to send us a message and we will assist you the best way we can.
