Mariposa organic aran is a roving yarn core wrapped with fine threads for a fantasy texture. This Organic Cotton Yarn is not only hand brushed, rustic & very soft, 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 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 these artisans and their families.

Most dyed colors & Marshmallow are Vegan. The exceptions are noted in each yarn description and consist mainly of the pinks & purple.
