Classic Elite's “Provence” is a 100% mercerized Egyptian cotton yarn. It is a cabled cotton yarn that has a long staple length, which makes it strong and gives it great sheen. And since it is mercerized, it absorbs dyed beautifully and is less likely to shrink! This perfect cotton yarn is wonderful for convenient market bags, breezy summer tops and skirts, or a lovely cardigan.
