Today’s Shipment, Made to Order Cotton Yarn

This is natural cotton, grown and spun in Georgia, USA. What you see is 28 lbs of 3/1 spun yarn. I am wanting to see what the difference will be between the 3/2 cotton yarn that I have been using for my Fall blankets. Both in texture, comfort and the feel.

When summer has come to the Texas Hill Country, it’s time to work on your yarn stash. Taking the cones of cotton, I turn them into 8oz hanks each. Then scour and bloom the yarn in hot water with soda ash and soap. Next drip dry and sun bleach outside in the summer sun. Afterwards, I winded the cotton into cakes of yarns.

This is just the start of the stash.
