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 cream, beige, brown, sage and mauve shades.
No pesticides, herbicides, or other agri-chemicals are used to grow or colour these yarns. All harvesting and colour sorting is done by hand, just as it has been since the domestication of cotton in Peru over 4,500 years ago.
Certified Organic and Fairtrade cotton, loop is proud to stock this beautiful yarn.
Coming soon in Aran/Worsted weight as well.
Organic colours intensify with washing.
