Everything You Need To Know: Chakra Beaded Cotton Yarn

Written by Kate Curry

What Is Chakra Beaded Cotton Yarn

Chakra beaded cotton yarn is one of our newest types of yarn made by our artisans. This yarn is a gorgeous color-variegated DK weight yarn, perfect for new or experienced crafters looking to add a little more crystal magic to their fiber arts!  

How Is Chakra Beaded Cotton Yarn Made?

Handspun by our artisans in India, the cotton strands are dyed their respective colors that match each of the 7 chakras. Undyed, white strands are used by the artisans to hand-bead the gorgeous little crystals that match the 7 chakras.

Once some of the strands are dyed and the white strands are beaded, the strands are loosely plied together to create the chakra beaded cotton yarn that we love!
