hand spinners seed cotton

from 2.00

Spin your cotton right off of the seed. Offered are some special off white Pima cottons ( Pima S7 or S5) and some of my naturally colored lines. Sold by the ounce, the Pima and the Noble are my favorites to spin. But the sienna's color is just so captivating that even though the fiber is not as long or as strong as Noble and Pima, the amazing color makes up for a lot. Tans are the result of a brown or a red crossed with a long white cotton. They tend to be very easy to spin, and have some beautiful soft colors not achievable by blending brown or red with the white.

Historical white cotton seed lines are sold by the gram which is approximately one locule- or section- of the cotton boll. My favorite to grow in 2015 was Giza 45. It had a beautiful presence at 6 ft with it's flashy red main stem and branches along with it's large yellow hibiscus type flowers and dark green leaves. The lint was so fine, strong and silky that it was a joy to spin. The other Giza lines look more like Pima's with a shorter more rounded plant structure. The pure Sea Islands are very perennial like - large and everblooming sporting very small bolls that have the silkiest and longest of any cottons grown. 

The last photo is from Kori Farrel's  handwoven piece using Coyote 10/2 as the warp and handspun and boiled "Sienna" along with "Noble" and Mixed Seed cotton.
