Pakucho Certified Organic Flamme Worsted Cotton Yarn

Color Grown, Fair Trade Cotton Yarn & Vegan!

Color: Vanilla Cream (Pima)

This is fine long staple Pima Organic Cotton.

Made in Peru

Each hank is 50g. &73 yds.

The average needle used is #8 - #10 (4.5 - 3.5 sts) = 1").

This yarn knits up slightly chunky on a #10, BUT #8- 9 is a more normal worsted gauge. The yarn is made up of 2 roving strands twisted together to form a thick and thin alternating texture. This cotton will shrink between 10-15% in length. If you are unsure, I would launder a sample first when doing a project. The shrinkage only occurs when you machine dry it. If you want to avoid shrinkage, either machine wash or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

This is a beautiful, soft, thick & thin flamme rovings twisted together. This yarn like most organic cotton does not have a chemical finishing like conventional cotton so it not smooth and polished, but natural and rustic.

NOTE: The colors are more muted then the standard Pakucho yarns, especially the greens. This allows you to keep the color as is or deepen it with hot and/or machine drying. You have the choice!
