Fabric, Kona Cottons

March 22 – Sometimes You Gotta Strut Your Stuff!

Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Peacock! And it’s a pretty and light blue. Peacocks are really awesome, by the way! They are very social animals and like to remain in groups.

I grew up in the northeast – rural New York state, about an hour outside of Rochester. It was common to only wear shoes to school or church. Most of the time, my brother and I were barefoot running through the grass, climbing trees and getting into trouble when we went through our neighbor’s corn fields. Yeah…. the good ‘ole days! Living in the country gave us quite a bit of wildlife to find ourselves interested in….moles, snakes, caterpillars, cats, dogs, cows, ducks, geese, chickens…. and….. peafowl. That’s what families of them are called. Peafowl. Peacocks are the males and peahens are the females. There were always peacocks around and they have a very distinctive sound. They mostly came out in the spring time when mating season is and you’d find them in the fields, the yards and the roads, trying to get the attention of their favorite peahen. This is when they fluff their plummage (also called a train) for all the girls to see. It’s the “call of the wild” folks and this color definitely lives up to its namesake. Our family used to love going out collecting all the peacock feathers we could find. It was a lot more fun to watch them cross the lawn feathers down, sometimes feathers up chasing a couple of peahens.

Peacock is a beautiful bird and a beautiful color! Get yours on our site HERE today!
