Rico Design - Essentials Cotton DK Yarn
119 reviews


Rico Design Essentials Cotton DK is 100% Mercerised Cotton, giving it a glossy, smooth finish with excellent stitch definition. Ideal for 3mm and 4 mm needles, this light weight DK yarn has an extensive range of shades, making it the perfect staple for a range of summery garments and accessories. Machine Washable, but be sure to use a 30°C Gentle wash. 


Because it's so lightweight it's perfect for the warmer seasons, and best of all - knits to a standard Double knitting tension, meaning it can be used as a great quality substitute to a few of the more expensive mercerized cotton ranges.

Statecraft Special DK

Great colour although yarn seemed coarser than usual. I'm not sure if I will continue to buy as much now that the price has increased.
