Hello dear KPers,
Can anyone suggest a WOW cotton yarn in a blue/green, yellow/orange or pink color way for a Reyna Shawl?

I’m finding I need a scarf around my neck, even in summer, due to air conditioned environment..

Thank you.

If this is it? https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/reyna
That pattern is written for fingering yarn. Do you want 100% cotton? or a blend?
I made a wrap/scarf out of a variegated cotton linen and it is wonderful to use.

ETA: here's a Ravelry yarn search for fingering yarn, rated 4 or 5 stars, has at least some cotton, and sorted by most projects:

I've used knitpicks comfy (acrylic/cotton mix) that feels great... I cannot remember if it comes in solids only or stripes/variegated

How about Cascade Ultra Pima paints? There are some beautiful colours in it. Here:

By the way, lovely choice of shawl, and there are almost 9,000 Ravelry members who have posted theirs.

Thank you for the search info. I need to sit down and figure out how to do such an extensive search. I always appreciate your helpful and kind responses.

I'm using Chromo knit picks right now. I'll take a look at comfy for variegated.

Claudia Hand Paints has some beautiful colors. I'm using her new linen yarn now to make a top.

Tofutsies has different colors. It's a wool/cotton, though. Go to Ravelry.

Thank you for the suggestion—Yes, that color/yarn looks very nice!

I may NEED to make more than one, as I’m still trying to get through the extensive Ravelry search above and ooh and ahh on every page....

So much yarn—I hope enough time for my to do list that is ever changing!!

Appreciate your reply.
