I don't really know about the cotton or organic thread.. I've never looked for it. I have it in my head that cotton thread with fibers long enough to be strong would be expensive.. and organic thread would be WAAAAAYYYYY expensive... but I could be wrong. The reason I myself use woolly nylon is for a few reasons..
#1 being that it's soft. I thought thread was thread until I actually compared how the woolly felt compared to the just regular thread when I serged something... there's a difference.
#2 being that it's pretty.. it fills in the space nicely and they offer pretty colors.
Woolly nylon is NOT inexpensive.. it can actually be quite a bit more expensive than just normal cone thread yard for yard.. but I feel it's worth it because it gives a softer feel and more pleasing appearance. As far as I know, it's 100% nylon.. literally plastic.. it'll melt if ironed at a high enough temp. but it does seem quite durable.
Never thought about wool thread, but again, I think it might be difficult to get long enough fibers to make a strong thread and if so, then it would be extrememly expensive. But hey, never hurts to do a search and let us know what you come up with .. very interesting.
