Fluffy white cotton grows on plants. What if real plants grew colored cotton?
Scientists in Australia learn how to do that!
Read More: People in Egypt and India have been making cotton fabric for thousands of years. But people also dye (color) cotton fabric. And that dye is not good for the soil or water. The Australian scientists first put colored genes into tobacco plants. Those plants’ leaves grew with colored splotches. Now the scientists wait to see if their growing cotton plants have bright yellow, orangey-gold, or deep purple fibers. Exodus 35:25 tells us that skillful women of Israel spun blue, purple, and scarlet yarns into fabric to be used in the Tabernacle.
