Knitter's Review
June 9, 2005

handspun silk draped on apple blossoms I've talked before about artisanal yarns produced on or near the farm by environmentally conscious people—but they've all been wool yarns.

This week I look at a 100% organic cotton from Peru that shows what happens when we step out of the way and let Mother Nature do her thing.

Although our knitting baskets are all gone until July, I have just added a slightly larger shoulder basket with the same cheerful embroidered lining. I only got a few to see if you like them. If you do, we'll bring in more soon.
