This yarn is a 4-ply and gives excellent stitch definition and a soft hand. It's unmercerized, so the finish is matte and the colour palette is soft. (Mercerized cottons are treated under tension with caustic soda to give them gloss and to enable dye penetration when the dyer wants a really bright or deep colour). Lovely for chunky ribbed sweaters, substantial baby blankets, and anywhere you want a thicker cotton.
