Next Years Sheets Just Got Picked!
Every year, we harvest our cotton crop in the Fall. We pick just a little over 3,000 acres of cotton and select only the best quality fibers to go into next years bedding, bath and loungewear. Below are a few FAQs about our 2021 harvest!
How was the cotton crop this year?
Good! We are beating the average yield but we could have used more sunlight during the growing season!
What are we looking for when we select cotton for our products?
color, fiber length, fiber strength and uniformity of fibers!
When did you begin harvest this year?
We started picking in the middle of October this year... which is pretty late for us.
How long does it take to harvest?
12-13 full days!
How is the cotton harvested?
The cotton is harvested with a mechanical cotton picker that has spindles in them that grips the cotton and removes it from the boll.
How many sets of sheets can you get from a bale of cotton?
Approximately 70 sets!
