'Natural' is lusciously soft, and ready for your hand spinning pleasure. This spinning fibre is both Organic and Fair Trade, it comes from Peru. Previously, I spun and sold organic cotton in yarn form only, but now the fibre is available for you to enjoy with your spinning wheel too! Organic cotton is gorgeous to spin with, just make sure you have your wheel set up to spin at a fairly fast pace, and use a long-draw method (I use assisted long-draw). I have been spinning almost exclusively with organic cotton for the past two years, except for the occasional dip into bamboo, soysilk, ingeo, linen etc., and I love it more and more. This may be too challenging to a new spinner, in which case you may wish to try my linen fibre, http://www.etsy.com/listing/43749050/glacial-lake-flax-and-firestar-hand
but don't worry, cotton is not as hard to spin as you might think, just take your time, and enjoy. : )
After spinning cotton, you can boil it in plain, untreated water to set the twist. With naturally pigmented cottons like this one, the colour will slightly deepen the longer you boil it. (5 minutes to 2 hours). The colour also gently 'cures' over time and sets in to an even deeper, richer tone.
This listing is for one ounce of spinning fibre, if you would like to order more, simply increase the quantity while purchasing, or, if you would like to order a large amount, message me and I will make you a separate listing.
