15. This is the best yarn company in canada. Their pigments are so great.

https://briggsandlittle.com It is very wooly with fantastic pigments.

I did knit a sun dress for my sister with cotton yarn. I took measurements from blind guessing and knitted it like two sides of a tank dress. I cast on a certain number of stiches and knitted two inches before i realized that was the wrong size so i did my math and redid the casting on and it was perfect. The yarn was cotton ivory and it had some silver thread running through it. I did squares out of pearl and beside that squares out of knit. Each square was about 1.5 inches square. So it was a chequerboard pattern. I assumed she could use it as a cover up for a swimsuit in the summer. Don't know that she ever did. If i had been thinner then i would have kept it for myself. So there is cotton yarn out there you could knit with.
