Light Sierra Scarf in Undyed Colorganic® Cotton and White Alpaca Wool
A minimalistic exploration of natural colors, the warp of this piece highlights the beautiful Sierra Sienna shade of Sally Fox's Colorganic®* cotton, cast against a pure natural white alpaca wool weft.
Naturally colored cottons are heirloom varieties of cotton with roots tracing back thousands of years, that contain brown, green, or reddish pigments within their own fibers. These breeds exhibit not only uniquely beautiful undyed hues, but also offer greater resistance to UV radiation, bacterial growth, mildew, staining, and water due their substantially higher concentrations of tannins and protective waxes in comparison to white cotton. Naturally colored cottons are more drought tolerant and pest resistant, making them easier to grow organically.
Looming Jane's subtle but complex textiles are hand dyed, and hand woven exclusively with organic, American yarns, focusing primarily on the natural shades of both plant and animal fibers, in addition to using natural dyes.
Materials: Undyed Colorganic® naturally colored brown cotton warp, undyed white alpaca wool weft, polyester tag.
Designed and woven in New York.
*Colorganic® cotton is naturally pigmented, undyed, and grown organically.
