ginned lint from the breeding program

from 4.00

Handpicked cotton from individual plants or even whole plots are ginned every year. That lint is sent for testing - it's length, strength, micronaire and uniformity numbers give us a pretty important insight into how easily it will spin. The rest of the fiber, not used in the test remains for us to look at and savor...and sell to anyone wanting to handspin it. I am selling this lint by the oz by broad color family from the bulks (you may see a number on the bag describing which bulk plot it came from). This is the better deal price wise. Browns, reds, green vary wildly. Fiber qualities also vary.  For those that order the single plant section option, the code number will be on the bag, should you wish to keep track of it and participate in this breeding program by sharing your input and following that plant's offspring. The weights on single plant selections can be from 2-25 grams, depending on the plant. The greens are the worst averaging  2-3 grams from a particular plant! But they are interesting and each totally unique.
