Mercerized Cotton is prepared using a process first discovered by John Mercer in 1844. He found that when cotton fibres are submersed in a strong caustic soda solution they swell and develop a high lustre. Because of this, Mercerized Cotton fibres dye to a more brilliant shade than un-mercerized cotton, are stronger and more lustrous.

A Range of Thicknesses!

All 20 Colours of these Mercerized Cotton Yarns are available in 4 thicknesses (2/20, 2/16, 2/8, 4/8 and Boucle'). All come in 1/3 pound (150 g) tubes with weight, sett and yardage information shown below.

Tube Sizes

Note: The Canadian standard for naming yarn puts the number of plies on the top which is the opposite of the approach used in the US. For example in Canada "2/20 Mercerized Cotton" consists of 2 plies of #20 Mercerized Cotton which would be described as 20/2 Mercerized Cotton in the US. Both represent the exact same weight of yarn.
