I was wondering if anyone knows what was the original color of cotton? I'm really curious about this topic and couldn't find any reliable source to bring me a satisfying answer. I know that nowadays, cotton can come in various colors depending on how it's dyed, but what was it like before? Did it always look white, or did it have some sort of natural color that was later changed through processing?
I appreciate any help or insight you guys can provide. Thank you!
