Pakucho is the first Latin American enterprise to develop, spin and weave naturally colored and organically grown cotton fiber on an industrial scale. Read an article about this yarn from Knitter’s Review.

Ecobutterfly is currently the US distributor for this yarn.

The cotton is soft, flexible and easy to wear. This yarn is the perfect transition yarn from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter. The earliest records of spinning date back nearly eight millennia, to Peru where Pakucho meant ‘brown cotton’ in ancient Inca. Today, native spun Pakucho cotton is grown in natural colors. No pesticides, herbicides, or other agri-chemicals are used to grow or color these yarns. All harvesting and color sorting is done by hand, just as it has been since the domestication of cotton in Peru over 4,500 years ago.

Care Instructions:
- Hand or machine wash gently. Dry
flat. Store flat.

- Allow 10 % shrinkage after your
first wash. First wash is suggested
to be hot (60 degrees) to intensify
the colours of the cotton.
