Our french terry is organically USA-grown in New Mexico — on a farm just south of Las Cruces.
A rich shade of sepia, our french terry has a relatively uniform blend of 50% organic brown "coyote" cotton and 50% organic white acala cotton. There are some — very few — specks of deep brown that tend to sit on top of the fabric. These are little teeny cotton seeds. We love looking down at our clothing and noticing them. A beautiful reminder of how neat of a plant we are wearing.
This fabric was designed by legendary cotton breeder & farmer, Sally Fox.
Our french terry has a dense weave, providing excellent warmth. Also due to the density, pieces sewn from our Sepia French Terry have excellent longevity. We've seen 20-year-old sweatshirts made from this fabric that have frayed around the cuffs but are otherwise in excellent shape — just a tad of character!
