White on White. Purifying Cotton

A lot of people don’t realized that pure natural cotton is not white. It becomes stained with plant mats. and oils from the seeds when being ginned. Companies use industrial means to whiten the cotton. I want to know where my fiber and yarn comes from, and if it is eco-friendly.

Using only natural ingredients and old fashion ways, I am starting to lighten my own fibers and yarn when needed. In the pictures, (hard to tell in the pictures) the weaving has a natural cotton warp and and whiten weft. Just a shade different to show the draft more.
