Description

Marshmallow Farfalla Organic Cotton Hand Brushed Worsted Yarn (Cone)

Made from Pakucho certified organic pima long staple cotton yarn & fair trade.

It is best described as Natural. This color is undyed.

Farfalla organic worsted is a roving yarn core wrapped with fine threads for a fantasy texture. This Organic Cotton Yarn is not only hand brushed, but hand harvested & wood vat dyed by hand with organic eco-friendly dyes. Small variations in color may result from the artisanal process which adds to the beauty & uniqueness of this yarn.

This cone weighs approx. 2 lbs. 7 oz. The average yardage for a 1 kg cone (2 lb. 3.2 oz.) is 1500 yds approx. (NOTE: The weight next to the photo is the avg. packed weight).

Purchase of this cone is more economical when buying bulk amounts & comes with the added benefit of a lot less knots for your project.

If more than 1 cone is needed please e-mail us and we can list another cone at your request depending on stock, since all cone weights can & do vary.

This yarn is hand brushed so the texture is irregular, rustic and very soft.

The average needle used is #8

4 sts.=1" & 6 rows=1" (stockinette).

This yarn is made by native men & 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 artisans and their families.

When deciding to use different colors in one project you may need to test the two colors for any kind of color bleed. For example Creme and Indigo might have an issue while Sky Blue and Indigo wouldn't. If you have any questions about this check out the care instruction page or e-mail us.

I do my best to detail each color along with displaying the photo, but since monitors vary and if you're not familiar with this yarn, I highly recommend that you buy a color sample card (see Our Products to the left). It is well worth it!
