Organic Cotton Yarn from Pakucho, Blue Sky Alpacas from fabulousyarn.com


Cotton is a popular crop worldwide, consuming a significant amount of chemicals both in growing and processing. Naturally colored cotton is easier to grow organically, plus it does not require any bleach or dyes in processing. In 1988 there was only one acre of organically grown cotton in this country. By 2001, there were more than 11,000 acres in organic cotton. That number has since dropped to under 5,000 acres, as competition from foreign growers has increased.”

But the allure of naturally colored cotton has not diminished. Breeding and marketing has transformed an ancient plant into something new and desirable, found in upscale clothing, linens and yarn shops.”

Organic Cotton Yarn

Cotton works for Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall. In sizes both Skinny, worsted and even handspun. Organic Dyed and Completely Color-Grown (ie, naturally occuring colors) can be found here. We love cotton for it’s natural lightness, breathability, and the comfort it so naturally imparts. Soft enough for baby, hard-working and elegant enough for a night on the town, cotton is truly a miracle fiber.

If you didn’t already know, cotton is probably my absolute favorite yarn medium.
