Australian Cotton Lace Yarn (≈Ne 8/2) - 450g | Ada Fibres

Australian Cotton Lace Yarn on Large Cones

A locally grown Australian cotton that is ethically sourced and fully traceable back to the Queensland farm is finally available in Australia! 

This premium range of lace cotton yarns is a collaboration between Ada Fibres andFull Circle Fibres. It has been sourced and produced locally, right here in Australia.

Featuring heirloom quality, this laceweight cotton is made of fibres that have been grown for their length, fineness, and durability. The long 32mm fibres have been combed, ring-spun, and plied, resulting in a dense yarn with little loft and abrasion resistance. This cotton has approximately 30% higher density than other cotton yarns in the market. It measures 555/100g and is technically a Ne 20/2/3, but is sized as a Ne 8/2 equivalent.

The finish on this yarn has a shimmer, with the light reflecting off the long smooth fibres, yet it remains soft like unmercerised cotton. This Australian cotton lace yarn is perfect for handweaving and delicate crochet and knitting pieces. 

The Australian cotton lace yarn is also available in 140g spools (777m) to suit your project needs.

The colour palette for the Australian cotton lace yarn will be expanding in early 2022. With your support, we want to expand the range to offer Australian weavers a comprehensive selection of weaving yarns developed on Australian shores.  

Additionally, Thread Collective offers a sock weight yarn in the Australian cotton range, and soon a 20/2 fine weaving yarn.
