PERLE 5/2 COTTON: WHITE AND IVORY

Made by Silk City Fibers

 

Perle 5/2 cotton in ivory and white is perfect for weaving, both in the warp and weft. It is strong and mercerized, and takes dye beautifully.

This cotton is made by Silk City Fibers, the only yarn company left in Paterson, New Jersey. Paterson was nicknamed ‘Silk City’ for its role in textile and yarn manufacturing, specifically its dominance in silk textile production in the first half of the 19th century. Rachel, the founder of Weaver House, grew up fifteen minutes from Paterson and her grandfather worked in a fabric dyeing factory after he returned from the Vietnam War. Most Paterson factories eventually closed or moved south where there were no labor unions (at the time), and then finally moved overseas.
