Puritan crochet cotton is a vintage brand of crochet cotton made with cotton plants that have long, sturdy fibres. Plants noted for their pure quality are Pima cotton, Egyptian cotton and Sea Island cotton. Processed cotton from these plants creates a soft, durable yarn and fabric that produces high quality items. Mercerised cotton was developed in the mid 1800s. It is cotton that has been chemically treated to create a better thread, which absorbs dye easily.
