Pakucho Organic Cotton
Does anyone here have expierence with this yarn?

I am a new knitter, only one scarf under my belt, but itching to do more.
I would like to start making headbands to dress up my short hair as I patiently wait for it to grow out, and I like the idea of cotton headbands for the summer time.
The kind I want to make are a band about 1-2 inches wide, that stops just behind your ears, and continues in a tie that you tie at the base of your head.

I made a "prototype" with some leftover yarn from my scarf, but it is wool/acrylic bulky, a no go for summer!

Good to know!
Would it be suitable for headbands that need to be washed about once a week?
