This listing is for one 50-gram ball of organic cotton yarn in a refreshing sage/natural stripe, as shown in the first two photos. This fabulous 100% cotton yarn has a beautiful sheen and is exceptionally soft. Not only is it organic, but it is not dyed. That's right - no dyes were used to create this candy-cane stripe! The stripe was created by twisting 3 plies of natural-colored cotton with 2 plies of sage-colored cotton. We've all seen white cotton bolls, but cotton plants can also produce a few other colors - all very subtle tones. [See my other listings for a coordinating solid sage green and a lovely sand/natural stripe, all shown in the last photo.] Additional quantities are available, convo me if you need more - get two balls for $14, or three balls for $19.95. Each ball is 185 - 195 yards; suggested needle size US 3-5.

This is a very subtle stripe that is difficult to photograph; for a clearer view of the pattern, see the sand/natural stripe featured in the 3rd photo.

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled yarns, this organic cotton yarn is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to small fair trade organizations, but I wanted to expand my offerings to include some eco-friendly yarns that are not handspun, and whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude regarding women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this yarn has female executives.

Please note, the shipping fees quoted below are for USPS First Class. I can also ship by Priority Mail for a small additional fee (within the US, Priority shipping would cost $5.25 for this item). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you need Priority service, or if you'd like to purchase multiple items.
