Dove’s Green Cotton – Day 15 of le Tour

Dove’s Green Cotton, originally uploaded by dovesroost.

This is natural green cotton from our 2009 harvest. After selecting for depth of color in prior years, this lint is a nice sage. Here you see some lint, and a 2-ply, 28wpi yarn spun on the ol’ Fricke.

Here’s the yarn directly after spinning. Thanks, Smitty, for modeling.

After stripping the natural waxes,  the final color is set – a nice medium sage green.
