Chunka is 100% natural yarn, botanically dyed by the skilled hands of women artisans in the remote Sacred Valley of Cusco using locally sourced exotic plant materials only known to the mountainous regions of Peru. It is made of GOTS certified organic cotton.
Part of the beauty of natural dyes is their variation, creating unique skeins even within the same bath. We recommend you alternate skeins when knitting or crocheting and purchase enough for your project.
Caring for your Pichinku
Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend gently washing in lukewarm water with a tiny amount of mild detergent and laying flat to dry.
Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is recognized as the world's leading processing standard for yarn made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic yarn supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
