Monarch Hand Spun Chunky is a roving yarn core wrapped with a fine thread for texture. This Organic Cotton Yarn is not only hand spun, but hand harvested & wood vat dyed by hand with certified organic vegetable dyes. Small variations in color may result from the artisanal process which adds to the beauty & uniqueness of this yarn.
This yarn is hand spun by native women in Peru, which makes it very special. They earn more than their country’s set minimum wage. They are provided food and a very nice atmosphere to work in. There is no exploitation of children or slaves wages. This is what “Fair Trade” means. Buying this yarn helps to promote a better life for the hand spinners and their families.
All veggie dyed colors & marshmallow are Vegan.
