Even if you live in a warmer part of the world, you can still knit or crochet year-round if you choose the right fiber.

Plant fibers are ideal for warm-weather projects, both making them and wearing them. We have a wide range of plant-fiber yarns, including some that we'll introduce you to soon, but it's hard to go wrong with cotton. Our Berroco Modern Cotton™ has been around for a few years, and this worsted-weight cotton shows no signs of stopping—we also introduced a lighter DK-weight version not too long ago! 

Berroco Modern Cotton is a blend of 60% Pima cotton with 40% Modal® rayon, made of multiple plies for a smooth fabric. It is perfect for both garments and accessories and is available in a wide range of colors. Here's some project inspiration to get you started!
Booklet #358 Berroco Modern Cotton for Women has seven projects that are perfect for any climate; shown above are Rose, Thayer, and Jo. You can see that Berroco Modern Cotton can handle a variety of stitch patterns with ease! Take a peek at the making of this book.

Need more inspiration? Check out Portfolio Volume 3, a collection of pieces made with Berroco Modern Cotton and Modern Cotton DK. Shown here are the Baltica Cardigan by Alexis Winslow, the Caverly Shawl (crochet) by Ellen Mason, and Liesl Pullover by Véronik Avery. 
You can find even more patterns on our website, such as the Staysail poncho and Jetty shawl, shown below. There are also some some really cute baby patterns! Since Modern Cotton can go in the washing machine, it's a great choice for sweet baby sweaters and blankets.
