Xena Knits were kind enough some beautiful yarns from their Figgi Yarns range.
All the Figgi Yarn is made in Turkey
and is 100% cotton textured yarn.
They have a new range called Chic which is a unique cotton specific to Southern Turkey.
It is warm enough for the Autumn\Fall & Winter but cool enough for the summer months.

They have 3 different types of yarn in their range:
Chic This range of yarn is a soft plush cotton wool and is as drapey as silk.
It comes in 130g balls so one ball is enough to make most projects.
 As you can see from the balls below the yarn has a fantastic texture.
It comes in the following colours:
Natural, Henna Goddess
Darling Mulberry, Stone Heart
Misty Blue & Marshmallow Flirt.
The above yarn is the Marshmallow Flirt.

Another range is the Sifa Silver Yarn
It comes in the following colours:
Moss Green
& Earth Bronze
Sifa is the only cotton yarn with real surgical grade real silver absorbed into the cotton fibre.
You can't really tell in this light but you can really see
how it affects the light as you move it.
Silver has been proven to have anti-microbial, anti-odor and anti-bacterial properties.
This is especially handy for socks, slippers,
baby-wear, delicate preemie items, extra sensitive skin,
chemo caps or simply to luxuriate in a unique calming effect

it has such potential.
