Ella Rae Phoenix yarn is made from 100% Egyptian Cotton. Phoenix is a worsted weight that's sturdy enough for things like knitting market bags, but soft enough that garments are lovely as well. You will get nice stitch definition with the cable construction ply. Ella Rae Phoenix has a slight sheen and is machine washable. 182 yards per 100g skein.
