Item details

Organic cotton spinning fiber - 2 oz. / 60 gm bundle
Desert Mist - one of 14 naturally grown colors from Peru (Pakucho)

This is exceptional quality cotton for handspinning. The natural colors will darken when heat treated ie. boiling the cotton after spinning and washing finished products. For more information see:

There is an excellent video on learning to spin cotton by Stephanie Gaustad called "Spinning Cotton" available from Interweave Press.

History of Peruvian Cotton

"The earliest records of spinning date back to 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, avocado and mauve shades. 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 Peruover 4,500 years ago."

- James M. Vreeland Jr.
