Yearn Worthy Yarn: Pakucho
The power of nature still gets to me. So many wonderful things take place because of the sun and all of its cycles, which help power the growth of life on our tiny planet.
Using techniques and know how passed down from generation to generation, in Peru, Pakucho grows six different and natural colored cotton. No chemicals, dyes or other synthetic processes are used in the growth, production or spinning of these fibers.
Pakucho offers wonderful natural colors in cream, beige, brown, rust, chocolate, mauve, green and other earthy tones. The company is also dedicated to its heritage and very proud of the textile tradition that it helps bring into the twenty-first century.
I will continue to be in awe of the diverse color that nature provides for our knitting pleasure.
