Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Ivy.

My mother in law used to sing this song to my daughter when she was a baby. When I first heard it I was not sure what she was singing. She sang it to me several times, slowing it down so that I could understand the words. Once I knew the words I sang it many, many times when my children were little. According to wikipedia “Mairzy Doats” is a novelty song written and composed in 1943 by Milton Drake, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston.  It was first played on radio station WOR, New York, by Al Trace and his Silly Symphonists. The song made the pop charts several times, with a version by the Merry Macs reaching No. 1 in March 1944. The song was also a number-one sheet music seller, with sales of over 450,000 within the first three weeks of release.

Today’s color Ivy is a medium green that has a subtle, very slight yellow undertone. I works well with many of the different shades of green that are available. We now have all 365 colors available to you in the studio.
