This EZ Spin Cotton sliver was developed by Joan Ruane and is specially prepared with handspinners in mind.  The natural crimp in the cotton fiber is left in the sliver, and it is wonderful to spin.

The difference between the 2 varieties of white are in the fiber length. Pima is considered Extra Long staple cottons, and Acala is a long staple cotton.  For the Easy to Spin cottons,  Pima is the  longest: approximately 1.6″, and Acala with approximately 1.25″. These fibers are the same that we turn into our American Maid cotton.

Cotton sliver has a definite direction that makes the spinning process smoother, while the opposite end creates more slubs. If you are having difficulty spinning, try the other end.

There is no need to boil handspun cotton yarn unless you intend to dye it.  Soaking in hot water with a little detergent for about 30 minutes will set the twist and clean the cotton.
