Re: blue roses?


Hi Verona,
        I have a cotton sweater done in patterns that show off the beige,
brown and green tones of the cotton. I bought it in Nashville, Indiana at
the Winona (sp?) store. The fibers were sold under the name of FoxFibre
names for the reseacher Sarah Fox I think.  I goggled on that name a year
ago to find out where I could get more products made from this stuff and
found a disturbing article. She was sued or something by the cotton growers
in New Mexico or something. CAN"T grow colored cotton or something dumb like
that. SO I could only find where you can buy yarn and not finished products.
