Eco-Cotton is a beautifully versatile, hand dyed yarn that can be used for everything from cardigans to blankets and is perfect for baby items. Available in 42 gorgeous shades, this amazingly soft cotton will not split and has a pleasant scent.
Hand dyed by the talented staff of Nurturing Fibres in South Africa, this cotton is grown locally in their region. The water used comes from a borehole (well water) on their farm and is solar heated for dyeing. After the dyeing process, the water is then ph balanced and used to irrigate a nearby olive grove. The water they use for pre-soaking the yarn is later reycyled to water their vegetable gardens. How wonderful is that!
