Pima Paka by Mirasol

This Peruvian pima cotton yarn is recommended knit at 23-26 sts/4 inch on a US 3-5 (3.25-3.75 mm)  needle.

It is also 100% ORGANIC - no chemicals used in the fertilizers or in pesticides or defoliants used at harvest since it is HAND-PICKED to be sure the optimal staple length and finness are chosen

Not all the colors have arrived yet, but there are some lovely neutrals and gorgeous blues and greens (and a single red) to choose from already!

The weather conditions are optimal for cotton production in the coastal valleys of Peru - long sunny days, seasonal rains, and fertile soil.  Nicknamed the "Silk of South America", this pima cotton fiber can absorb almost 9% of its weight in water before you will feel dampness or perspiration, making it comfortable to wear even on the hottest of summer days! 


And the long staple and fine micrometer of this cotton, combined with a really nice twist, means that this yarn will be soft next to the skin, will wear well, and will have a great drape.

The swatch shown in the gallery was knit using a US 5 (3.75 mm) needle and it has 6 sts/inch.

Each skein features 328 yards!!

Price Per: $14.99
