I have fond memories of seeking out the cotton plants that I saw as a child growing wild along the walking paths of Haiti’s beaches. Little tufts of cotton exploded out of their husks, waiting to be gathered up. The cotton balls were thin and the texture soft, and spongy. The purity of the raw cotton remains strong in my memory.
