"Blue Sky Alpacas" organic cotton
 
My order just came in. This stuff is incredible. It's way softer than I expected and the undied colors are beautiful. :notworthy:

Like I said, it just came in. So I haven't knit anything with it yet, but I can already tell it's going to be a winner. Highly reccomended.

Some yarns are perfect the way they are, even without knitting them. ;)

I am a huge fan of BSA - they are my all time favorite brand because they make organic cotton. I have not been able to find any other brand that makes it, let alone as well as they do.

Of course, I'm a big environmental freak :D

I have been oggling the BSA organic cotton on the WEBBS site. Where did you get it?

I found a brand called Pakucho on Elann.com that is 100% organic cotton. Instead of being dyed it is is grown in colors. All they have available ATM is a beige color called Vicuna.
I was thinking of ordering some to see what the hand is like. I am new to knitting, so this shall be an adventure.
