Wow - this cotton is such a beautiful brown. When our 4-year old brought some in the house I was amazed at the beautiful color. With green-cotton (which we also grow), it seems to be half-white/half-green, but with the brown cotton it was mostly brown, and so beautiful! (though I recommend growing some of both because the green cotton seemed more productive for us earlier in the season)
