While even the thought of wool might make you sweat, it's not your only option: Discover the amazingly summer-friendly, plant-fiber coolness of cotton. Cotton yarn (like its friend, linen, which also comes from a plant) just feels cooler and is perfect for loose, summery designs — tops, lacy shawls, light cardigans, even swimwear and beach cover-ups.
