What does the word unmercerized mean?


This might sound silly but I found an ad on some yarn sale that described the yarn as unmercerized and I dont seem to know what it mean! :oops:

I tried dictionary.com but it didnt know either heehee :doh:

Thank you :slight_smile:

Here is the process of mercerizing. Unmercerized, is cotton that is not treated.

oooooh does that mean it would fee l rough? Like its not too soft on the skin?

I make night caps for cancer patients using blue sky alpacas organic cotton. It was sooooooo soft. My DH tried one on and put in a request. Then my DS started taking Daddy’s so I made him one. If my son can’t find his, he still takes his Daddy’s. My DH told me this winter I should make an extra. :teehee:

wow!! Thank you for the help! :muah: Sounds like a wonderful texture hehee :heart:
