This super soft yarn is hand-dyed using 100% GOTS certified unmercerized cotton imported from Peru. All of our yarn is dyed, then overdyed over multiple days to create an effect similar to kettle dyeing with subtle color variations. There are 4 weights available of each colorway.
Tanguis cotton is a Peruvian cotton which is very soft, durable, and environmentally friendly as it needs less water to grow than other varieties. Our cobweb weight yarn is made of Pima cotton, which has an extra-long staple length, making it a durable yarn choice for hard-wearing items. Our yarn is perfect for knitting, weaving, or crochet.
About this colorway - Curious Checkerbelly This colorway was inspired by the rare Checkerbelly snake of South America. Not much is known about the species, but it has beautiful orange and red bands separated by bands of black.
15% of proceeds from this listing will be donated toLas Gralarias Foundationwhich raises funds for Reserva Las Gralarias in Mindo, Ecuador. The goal of the reserve is to protect land at varying altitudes of cloud forest habitat that would otherwise be used for agricultural purposes. I was fortunate enough to intern at the reserve for a month in 2011 and am confident that funds will be put towards much needed conservation efforts. The reserve has an abundance of amphibians, which is why all the colorways with 15% of proceeds going to Las Gralarias are reptile and amphibian inspired.Learn more!
