This 100% Pima Cotton comes all the way from Piura, Peru - notorious for producing the finest cotton. It's incredibly soft and boasts top-notch quality for year-round knitting projects. The smooth, almost pearlescent finish of this cotton elevates any creation. It's also a great option for those avoiding wool or artificial fibers, with each skein weighing in at a generous 100 grams compared to the standard 50 grams for other cottons.


Kits we have in stock with this yarn: Botos Tee

The yarn is dyed in small batches so from one lot to another there may be a slight difference in colour.

Dye Lots: Where you see the same colour listed twice but with a different 'L#' suffix, this is indicating there are 2 dye lots in stock.  For example 'Linen-L11' and 'Linen-L12' are the same colour but from different dye lots.

    Light summer knit

    I've just cast on the Rota Sleevless top with this yarn and I am loving working with it. It's soft and easy to work with, and there is a pretty good colour selection.
