  • Fingering Weight
  • 383yds/100g
  • Fiber Content: 60% organic cotton, 40% linen, 4-ply
  • Origin: South America
  • Water Use: Cotton is a thirsty crop, though some studies suggest organic cotton requires less water to grow than conventional cotton.  Flax (from which linen is spun) requires much less water than cotton crops and can be grown on poor soil that is not suitable for grazing or other crops.
  • Chemical & Pesticide Use: Organic cotton is grown free from synthetic pesticides, chemicals, or GMO seeds. 
  • Characteristics: Deer Creek comes closest to that classic linen feel--a sturdy and initially crispy-feeling fiber with incredible longevity. Though it takes a little patience on the needles, it will soften into your favorite breathable summer fabric with washing and wear. The linen content helps improve both drape and hold (meaning it will sag less than 100% cotton). The high linen content blended with organic cotton makes it one of our most sustainable fiber options! Since Deer Creek is a lovely natural biscuit color when undyed, we only offer it for our darker colorways, where that undertone adds a rich and moody character to your best-loved shades.
