Venne Cotton - 20/2 Mercerized
Venne of Holland is known for their high quality yarns in lots of yummy colors. Made from long staple Egyptian cotton, mercerized then gassed for exceptional strength and sheen. Dyed by the strict European standards, this yarn won't bleed like other cottons. The quality is exceptional! This is the yarn used in the popular book, Weaving with Echo and Iris. The sheen of this yarn is very high, it looks like silk!
The US number is 20/2 Ne, European size is 34/2 Nm.
