old asclepiadacea

knowing that the latest indigo
findings are that a textile
a peruvian, not an egyptian textile
has the earliest indigo archaeological evidence is cool.
 but
what's even cooler is that the textile
that old peruvian one
woven with several techniques,
has white and brown cotton
and milkweed fiber!
MILKWEED!
glennis, aimee, melissa, gin, 
and the rest of you who along with me
are 
milkweed nuts,
well, YAY!
