Captiva: Cotton DK Yarn | Hand-Dyed Skeins | KittyBea by the Sea
KittyBea, by the Sea is a new Collection of coastal inspired colorways. Inspiration is taken from scenic beaches, coastal landmarks, and local wildlife- including gorgeous shells found whilst beachcombing. The first location of inspiration is (naturally): Florida!
When I decided to hand-dye cotton, my Captiva base is exactly what I was looking for in a cotton yarn. Captiva has a wrap, which allows it to hold its shape, provides an interesting texture, and has lovely stitch definition. It's soft, solid and has a little tooth. Its perfect for a beach sweater, baby items, and accessories. This yarn was used in KittyBea's Abbe Pullover knitting pattern.
