This is the cotton plant made into soft as a cloud, raw, roving form for spinning yarn by machine or by hand. It would make great stuffing for organic projects like pillows, etc. All you need to do is tease it.

The Deep Mauve Fifo is rare & absolutely beautiful.

Please note that different cotton crops produce varying colors. So when buying the sliver, buy enough for your whole project to avoid color variation. If you are unsure of the color differences due to monitor variance you can order a Pakucho color card. All the colors will be included so you can buy exactly what you want.

Please note  that this rare color is soft, but not as silky to the touch as the other color grown shades. It is less processed and there is no other natural shades mixed in leaving it deeper and more pure in color, just as it grows on the tree. This is truly special.

Like all Peruvian color grown cotton it does in fact grow on trees.... and fairly tall trees at that. They are quite beautiful when the buds are ready to harvest.

We are hoping to convince the native farmer's to plant more of the deeper and rarest of colors so that one day it could be offered at a better price. We are donating money to help the farmer's plant more mauve seed convincing them of a demand. Part of the proceeds go back to the native farmer's for this reason.
