This is a wonderfully unique, easy-to-dye cotton. It has been pre-treated to attract and hold dyes without the use of extra chemicals, so you can dye it with nothing but fiber reactive dyes and water (no soda ash required)!
It comes with a very light pink tint to it which can be rinsed out prior to dyeing. The tint is only there to distinguish it from the regular untreated cotton.
The cotton comes in sliver form, making it easier than normal to spin.
This cotton is grown domestically in the USA and is 100% organic. You can spin this wonderful cotton with a regular spinning wheel or support Spindle like a tahkli.
To set the twist in your hand-spun cotton yarn, a warm bath is all that is needed to awaken the twist and let it set properly. You can simmer it on low heat, boil it, or even steam it to set the twist.
I suggest hand-washing your finished garment and laying it flat to dry, just as you would for any hand-spun product.
