American Maid naturally coloured cotton
Sustainably grown, colorful cotton yarn straight from American cotton fields to you! This American made yarn is available in the colors that it is grown in, no dye required! Available in: Dark Brown, Light Brown, Dark Green, Light Green, Natural White (the color of “white” cotton before it is bleached) and now Bleached White.
The Lunatic Fringe Yarns line of Naturally Colored American Maid™ yarns come in Dark and Light Brown, Dark and Light Green, Natural White and Bleached White. The brown and green colored cotton yarns become darker when washed, especially in alkaline water. Just add baking soda to the warm wash water and watch the color deepen. The first wash water is often pretty dirty because when you wash it, it is the yarn’s first bath! You are washing off the dirt from the fields as well as any oils or dirt from the processing.
These yarns are 100% American Made yarns. Lunatic Fringe purchase the cotton lint from the cotton growers and then tend the fiber all the way through its processing into yarn. Each year they make purchasing choices to make their yarns as sustainable as they can.
