Cotton yarn in particular and other natural fibers derived from other plant and animal sources have been used by human beings since the dawn of human societies to produce fabrics. Cotton has remained as the main source for making the yarn till today. Cotton crop is grown by farmers almost everywhere as there is a good demand for the whiter and softer tissues of cotton to make yarn to produce fabrics.
The organic cotton yarn made from cotton crop is softer and free from any harmful chemicals. The farmers cultivate the cotton crop without using any chemical based fertilizers and pesticides. Even at the time of processing the cotton and spinning of the yarn, no artificial and toxic chemicals are utilized. The organic cotton yarn, as required is colored or dyed with naturally derived coloring pigments from plants, animals and other earth elements.
Organic cotton yarn is an ethical product produced by the local farmers. As a matter of fair trade practice these organic cotton farmers are paid decent and appropriate wages and cared in several ways.
