Erika Knight Gossypium Cotton
Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre that grows in a protective casing around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus gossypium. Cotton fibre is sustainable to grow, naturally soft, breathable and hypoallergenic making it ultimately comfortable to wear.
‘Gossypium cotton’ is a bespoke yarn, which is made in India in the Hisar District in the state of Haryana by an eco-friendly manufacturer who is very much at the heart of the local community, promoting fair labour practices and the welfare and development of its employees.
Through every stage of its creation; from the selection of the raw cotton fibre, which is of the highest quality and grown in the area surrounding the mill, through spinning, dyeing and balling, ‘gossypium cotton’ is crafted for you with care.
With pastel colours taken from the British Blue Wool colour palette and new classic colours, this naturally soft and breathable cotton yarn is perfect for baby.
