Aunt Lydia's Baker's Cotton Crochet Thread

Baker's CottonAunt Lydia's Baker's Cotton Crochet Thread
Gifted by Coats & Clark
Reviewed by Melissa Conner, Editor of


It may seem strange, but one of my fondest memories of going to the bakery with my grandparents was watching the baker tie the box.  As he twisted the yarn and twirled the box around, I watched in utter amazment at how quick and fluid his movements were.  Little did I know that I was, at that very moment, forming one of my most cherished childhood memories.

Every time I see Baker's Cotton now, or even thin crochet yarn or twine, I instantly flash back to that small bakery in Chicago...and that baker who poetically tied up our cookies and pastries...and I smile thinking of how precious and fun those sweet days were.

After playing around with the new Aunt Lydia's Baker's Cotton Thread, I found myself going back to those sweet memories.  But the baker's string now is so different than what it used to be.  The old red and white string has morphed into colorful purples, greens, blues, pinks, and blacks...and I had NO IDEA how much fun you could have with this humble crafting yarn.

Available in a wide variety of colors, this super thin cotton yarn can easily be used for apparel, accessories, and home decor.  You can use it for crocheting, knitting, and other yarn crafts...such as friendship bracelets or yarn wrapping.  You get 150 yards per skein, so there's LOTS of yarn in one ball for tons of crafting fun.

As a baker who uses this string on a daily basis, I can tell you that the possibilities are endless for what you can do with this yarn.  Think outside of the bakery box...and have fun!
