Robert Kaufman's Kona Cottons have been a quilting staple since 1984, and it's not hard to see why!
Kona Cotton is based on a standard cotton sheeting construction of 20x20 yarns and 60x60 thread count. However, this standard construction doesn't provide the weight or bulk that Kona is known for. To achieve this, extra yarn was added for a custom construction, which creates a higher thread count and adds to the overall bulk of the finished product. Kona Cotton therefore weighs more than standard cotton sheeting. Renowned for its hand, it adds desired structure to patchwork projects while still being a delight to sew through.
Piece-dyed in lots using reactive dyes, Kona is processed and tested according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, satisfying the requirements of its product class (class II) to be free and clear of harmful substances.
