Not all yarn is equal. If you use Cotton DK yarn then you will probably already know that. If you are looking for a premium quality, super-soft, 100% cotton DK yarn at a fabulous price point then this is the one for you.

At first glance, this is a regular everyday cotton 100g DK ball of yarn. But once you have felt the wonderful soft touch, smooth working feel and impeccable stitch definition of Emu Cotton DK you will quickly realise the only thing ‘everyday’ about it is the exceptional price point. It’s just about the perfect choice of cotton DK yarn, knitting to a regular DK tension it is the ideal choice for almost any project.

Reassuringly, the yarn experts at Emu spent more than a year finding the perfect soft-cotton to create Emu Cotton DK, and the 5-star customer rating it has acquired in a very short space of time suggests it was well worth the wait! This yarn is so soft that it has also been awarded with Emu-Soft Certification, the guarantee of genuine yarn softness.

It is probably no shock that with its generous 100g balls, hand-selected colour palette of classic pastels gently complemented by bolds and brights, Emu Cotton DK is our best-selling cotton yarn - outselling its nearest rivals by more than double!

After look and feel, the question we are asked most often about our yarns by knitters and crocheters is ‘can I put it in the washing machine at a decent temperature?’ In fact, this is almost always the first question when it comes to yarn versatility. Well, Emu Cotton DK is as versatile as any 100% pure cotton yarn can possibly get - it is fully machine washable at 40 degrees and it can be ironed at a low temperature. That means you can wear your Emu Cotton DK garments and accessories again and again, and never worry about it!

From children’s hats to baby bonnets, soft-blankets and throws to classy boleros, cardigans, jumpers, and home accessories - Emu Cotton DK is the softest most universal cotton DK yarn that you will find!

The all-new Emu story…

Emu is one of the best-known brands in British knitting, a family favourite for generations of knitters and crocheters since 1941. The entire Emu range has now been reworked and relaunched with an ever-growing portfolio of modern yarns that offer exceptional quality and value for money.

Emu Cotton DK, along with its Emu sister brands, has been curated by a team who have sourced some of the most famous yarn names in British knitting. For the last few years, this team has been focused on sourcing the all-new Emu yarn ranges, ensuring that every Emu yarn is at least the equal of the best-known equivalent products available. Just read the reviews, scores of knitters and crocheters have made the switch to Emu and will tell you all about the premium handle, the softness and the quality - the equivalent and better of far more expensive alternatives!

Why switch to Emu? The simple answer is exceptional quality and value for money. It’s no trade-secret to know that all Emu yarn ranges have been sourced directly from some of the finest spinners across the globe. The Emu team have ensured that the fibres used in creating every ball of yarn are of the highest quality and that the spinning processes are to their exacting specification. And going direct means that Emu ensure their prices offer the very best value for money!

For a brand renowned for its quality, colour range and, of course, its softness, the Emu Classic, Treasure, Cotton and Funfair ranges are true modern classics in their own right, continuing a spinning tradition that goes back over 80 years.
