Our American Maid™ cotton line of yarns continues to grow. This collection is the white color that grows in the field. No dye, no bleach, just the soft, off white color of Acala cotton. All of these yarns are made from cotton grown here in the US, and spun in the US. We are doing our part to help the US textile industry remain here.
These American Maid™ yarns in 3/2, 6/2, 8/2, 10/2 and 12/2 are our responsibility from the field to your door. The cotton lint is from farmers who use modern sustainable farming practices. The cotton is grown organically, spun in a mill in the US and shipped directly to our warehouse ready to be wound on smaller cones and shipped to you. As of 2022, the 20/2 yarn is only available as a NON-US made yarn. It is sourced from Egypt at this time.
You will love the soft hand of these yarns as you create your handwoven treasures. They pair beautifully with our naturally colored cottons as well.

I love this yarn! My latest project is a baby blanket and it washes up so soft, it’s perfect. I also have some of the natural green which I used, along with the natural white, for towels. Again, so soft and absorbent. I have only used the 8/2 but I think I will be experimenting with some of the other weights in the near future.

Lovely soft yarn and very affordable! The natural white is whiter and not as yellow as in this photo. I also like brown and green colors. I’ve mostly used 10/2 and it’s a great size for towels.
