Luna Cotton by Cascade Yarns is a high quality soft cotton, made in Peru. It is a direct substitute for Mission Falls 1824 Cotton (which is no longer being made). It is the same construction as Mission Falls cotton and knits to the same gauge. This cotton has an outer wrap of fine cotton, which reduces stretching, and helps to ensure that the garment will keep its shape.
The Lunda solid colours come in a 50 gram hank or skein, and the Paints come in a 100 gram hank or skein.
