8/2 Organic Cotton from Venne of The Netherlands. Certified GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).  Although the price is high for cotton, what it represents, is a collective effort to improve our planet. Available on 100 gram cones in 25 colors.  It is more a "homespun" look than Bockens Egyptian cotton, it is very absorbent for towels. We like it sett just a tad looser than the Egyptian 8/2.
