Naturally colored cotton is easier to grow organically, plus it does not require any bleach or dyes in processing. In 1988 there was only one acre of organically grown cotton in this country. By 2001, there were more than 11,000 acres in organic cotton. That number has since dropped to under 5,000 acres, as competition from foreign growers has increased.
But the allure of naturally colored cotton has not diminished. Breeding and marketing has transformed an ancient plant into something new and desirable, found in upscale clothing, linens and yarn shops.
