Organic cotton yarn. Undyed. Charka Yarn.
Organic cotton yarn is not like your usual cotton yarns it is a whole movement! Its history stemmed from the Khadi movement in the 1920's started by Gandhi.
This cotton yarn has been spun where the cotton grows. The spinners work alongside the farmers who produce this cotton. In these farms there are no pesticides used so therefore our handspun cotton yarn has that organic element.
We are very proud of this cotton yarn because it has been handspun for us by a group of village women in India and is the softest cotton I know. It is a dream to work with! It also dyes beautifully, too.
This cotton yarn doubled up and makes the most luxurious sweater, hat, throw, shawl and other such luxury items. Knit, crochet, weave. Ethical, sustainable and certainly soft. A unique artisan yarn. This cotton is grown in the villages where these women spin. It truly is a remarkable fibre!
Each 100g skein is approx 139 yards.
