I crocheted for years with yarn and then with the cotton threads.
From time to time I still stop knitting and work with crochet.
I found a pattern in Crochet Today about three years ago for a baby dress made using the ripple crochet method. It would make very nice gifts for new babies. However the pattern calls for cotton thread. A new mother is not going to have the time or desire to block this dress each time it is washed.
Does anyone know of a crochet thread that is a nice blend of maybe cotton and rayon, or any other that would give nice results?
I have looked at what sock yarns are available to me, but they all have drab colors mixed in them. I can never find solid color sock yarn.
I know I can buy online, but I'd rather be able to see and feel first hand before buying.
