Cairns is a cotton acrylic yarn blend with many colors, designed to stripe. Cairns is great for summer garments such as short sleeve tops, vests over tanks or shells or a simple shoulder wrap should the occasion need one. Since it is a worsted weight, it knits and crochets up quickly and the color just pops.
Cairns is extremely popular in Sharyn Anhalt's Market Square Bag. This bag can use 2 different colors or two of the same color. It's a great gift and an Ieasy project to work on with a 4-row pattern repeat.
