Notes:
Sally Fox began growing brown cotton in 1982 and experimented with cross breeding it. By 1985 some of Fox's plants growing from crosspollinated seeds produced green cotton as well as brown. These naturally colored cottons were brought to the marketplace in 1989, when Fox established her company, Natural Cotton Colours, Inc., in Arizona. Fox Fibre is the registered trademark of her naturally colored cotton.
