WHAT’S HER STORY?
Shiny Happy Cotton’s chic Italian sister is in town. Crafted in London and beautifully hand-painted in Peru : she’s the same sleek, soft 100% Pima cotton yarn you already love, with a terrazzo twist. Bellisima!
WHAT’S IT LIKE TO KNIT WITH?
Soft to the touch, drapes like a dream; Hand-Painted Shiny Happy Cotton will keep you cool when the temperatures rise.
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
We love Hand-Painted Shiny Happy Cotton for our summer projects, but she’ll work all year round. Dresses, sweaters, blankets - you name it, she’s got it covered.
