Our line of Naturally Colored American Maid™ yarns come in  Dark and Light Brown, Dark and Light Green, Natural White and Bleached White. The brown and green colored cotton yarns becomes darker when washed, especially in alkaline water.  Just add baking soda to the warm wash water and watch the color deepen.  The first wash water is often pretty dirty because when you wash it, it is the yarn’s first bath!  You are washing off the dirt from the fields as well as any oils or dirt from the processing.

These yarns are 100% American Made yarns.  We purchase the cotton lint from the cotton growers and then tend the fiber all the way through it’s processing into yarn.  Each year we make purchasing choices to make our yarns as sustainable as we can.  See our sustainable story here.

We have the yarns available in 3/2, 8/2 and 10/2 as well as a cabled 4-ply yarn. All available on 1 lb cones.  3/2 makes wonderful bath towels, snuggly blankets or delicious placemats, with 1260 yards per pound cone.  8/2 and the slightly finer 10/2 are go to sizes for baby wraps, handtowels and lightweight blankets.  3,360 yards per pound for 8/2 and 4,200 yards per pound for 10/2.  The cabled 4 ply yarn is a worsted weight yarn and knits up beautifully on size 7-9 needles with a 16-20 gauge in stockinette stitch.  A 1 lb cone has approximately 1,050 yards on it.

We also have 5 colors of these yarns available in a sampler kit if you want to try out small quantities of the yarns.
