Phoenix DK - Cloudy Skies (#1006)


Cloudy skies is a gentle, pure grey. 


This 100% Egyptian cotton is spun from a very fine and long fibre (mako), making it strong and resistant to fuzzing up. The yarn is a tightly twisted eight ply, with each ply made up of two plied strands themselves. The cotton is also mercerised, giving it a beautiful soft sheen and extra strength. This would be an ideal cotton for summer garments.
