Many of our devoted cotton spinners have asked for Seed Cotton, that we made a special request from our local cotton gin to have some of this great spinning fiber delivered.
What is "Seed Cotton" and why would you want to spin with it? Seed cotton is the cotton fiber that has been picked (mechanically) from the plant. The fiber is still attached to the seed (unginned).
Hand spinners love to spin from Seed Cotton because the fibers are longer and more continuous, since they haven't been torn apart when the fiber is usually separated from the seed in the ginning process. The fiber easily separates from the seed when handspinning it.
