The Ultimate Cotton Yarn

In the never-ending quest for the world's finest fibers to make textiles for the World's Cutest Kids, I have come across a unique fiber that I'm really enjoying working with. It's an organic Fox Fiber cotton from Thantex. What's cool about it (besides that it's organic, like my blog) is that it is naturally colored-- it is grown that way, not dyed. The colors deepen and mature with washing. It's so cool! The kids agree; they each got a sample of the yarn and went immediately to wash it and watch it change color.
