Enjoy an eco-friendly, and lusciously soft knitting experience with our fair trade organic cotton, also known as Pakucho (pronounced pack-OO-cho), from the ancient Incan word for 'brown cotton'. These cottons are naturally pigmented, which means they actually grow in these colours, so there's no dye at all. This type of cotton is very different from what is commonly used, botanically its called Gossypium barbadense, or South American cotton. These are ancient heritage varieties, that at one time were very rare, due to industrialization, and the desire for the quick and easy white cotton. By purchasing these and the other organic cotton yarns here, you are directly supporting biodiversity and the amazing heritage of colourgrown cottons. This yarn is EKO Certified Organic by USDA, GOTS, Control Union, SKAL & Certified Fair Trade by Control Union Fair Choice, it has been made for Vegan Yarn by Peru Naturtex. Pakucho cottons are incredibly soft and light, easy to knit, and are a great choice for babies, children, and those with sensitivities.
Note: The latest batch Lot ARTLAN-EKO2018-02 is a little bit loftier and thicker than usual. It's absolutely lovely, but if you're combining it with other colours, it may require adjustment. I recommend sizing down one. I used fingering Rust with Sport Desert and they matched gauge perfectly.
