Tara Add to My Favorites
When you need yarn volume without the heaviness of 100% cotton, choose "Tara" from GGH for your knitting & crochet projects year round. Using the same spinning technology as with soft & lightweight wool-blend Bel Air, "Tara" is an airy cotton blend creation. Since it's a heavy worsted/aran weight yarn, it works up terrifically in all your favorite sweater, jacket, top, shawl & handbag patterns. The perfect choice for any season when you're making garments for babies, children & those with sensitive skin. Beautifully crafted in Italy of 72% cotton & 28% nylon.

Please Note: Company research shows that a sweater normally weighing about 3.5 pounds (1585g) drops to only 1-1.5 pounds (500-600g) when knitted in "Tara." That's a significant decrease of about 2/3s of the weight!
