Bernat, WHY???

Cotton-ish by Bernat

“Cotton Club”, black yarn from Bernat in JoAnn

Who at Bernat thought this was a good idea?

This is a skein of “Cotton-ish” yarn from Bernat that I saw in JoAnn while looking for something else. It is a black skein of yarn labeled “Cotton Club”.

All I think of when I see this is a couple of confederate flag-waving white women sitting around chuckling to themselves while knitting socks.

It’s not like the Cotton Club was a good thing for Black people and it can’t be a coincidence that a skein of black yarn by Bernat is labeled “cotton club”.

People, please learn your history (and from the perspective that matters).
