"The earliest records of spinning date back to nearly eight millennia, to Peru,
Pakucho meant brown cotton in ancient Inca. Today, native~spun
Pakucho cotton is grown
in natural, cream, beige, brown, avocado & 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.

Another very important point is that Peru does not allow Genetically Modified
(GMO) seed or crops into their country.This way there is no risk of
contamination keeping the fiber organic with no risk. GMOs are a complete
and utter
devastation to natural and organic crops in the US and many other
countries around the world.

Please note that different cotton crops produce varying colors. So when buying
the sliver,
buy enough for your whole project to avoid color variation. Also, the
color grown sliver comes
more natural and a bit lighter then the Pakucho yarns do,
especially the greens. This gives the
spinner or eventual crafter the option to make
an item and keep the color as is or deepen your
finished product with hot water and
machine drying. This gives you creative control with the
added benefit of the color
change! Just have fun with it!
