Heirloom Nankeen Brown Cotton with Seeds, Spinning Fiber to Gin Qty: 1 Ounce
This years crop had a very slow start thanks to an early drought. It was later hit with a very early first freeze/frost followed by a long warm first half of fall. 2020 has really been one heck of a year. This lint matured with some color variety. I have included photos showing about two ounces of fiber with gold finch feathers, a snail shell, and a copper US penny. The lint is short and seems to break rather easily. It is not as soft as Arkansas Green.
Hand grown, harvested & packed, chemical free heirloom Nankeen raw cotton removed from the husks or bolls with seeds intact (no stems, no bolls). The lint (cotton) has been hand pulled from the husk (boll) by yours truly. Intact cotton seeds are great for educational purposes. Because the seeds are still in the lint, you can remove the seeds from the lint (ginning) & plant them.

If you spin, you will welcome having your very own chemical free all natural cotton! No dye, no bleach, no synthetic fertilizers, no chemicals, nothing artificial, nothing added. 100% pure & natural cotton made by Mother Nature, not Monsanto/Bayer.
Feel good knowing you are getting non GMO cotton grown in a chemical free environment. I intermingle all my crops creating a messy but beautiful landscape. I believe this attracts a larger variety of bugs, helping to keep any one species from overtaking. NO! sprays or treatments, even the organic approved types. I work with Mother Nature, not against her...
