Right Material for the Job…
These cottons are absolutely beautiful to work with. They have just the right amount of lustre to really enhance fine weaving patterns and the large range of colours complement each other so well. The strength of this cotton is excellent making it perfect for warping. Your woven pieces will have good drape, last well wash after wash and most of all feel lovely to wear.

Refer to your project pattern to determine how much cotton you will need  to complete your project.  It is always better to get a little more than you need especially when sampling or if you get a tad over-zealous with your beating; don’t worry, we have all been there!

If you are new to weaving you could also check out our range of Ashford weaving books. They contain a lovely little treasure trove of tips, tricks and patterns to get you started.

Happy weaving!

Please note that not all cottons are available for shipment at the date of order.  We have a continuous order of cotton arriving however we struggle to keep up with demand.  

Should you require your cotton ASAP please contact us before placing an order to get information of stock availability.  



Ask a Question
  • is the 10/2 or the 5/2 the thicker cotton?

    The 5/2 is the thicker of the two cottons - each cone has 200gm of 848m/927yds, v's the 10/2 which is 1696m/1854yds.

    Thank you

  • Is there somewhere I can find the pattern for the two scarfs(?) or table runners(?) featured on the cotton yarn page?

    Hello and thank you for your question.  I believe the pattern used in this illustration was featured in the Ashford Book of Weaving Patterns CLICK HERE You will find many patterns in this beautiful colour illustrated book by Elsa Krogh.  I hope you find this helpful.  Kind regards Cheryl
