Pakucho is lusciously soft, and lofty. This spinning fibre is both Organic and Fair Trade, it comes from Peru.
Grown on small farmyard plots by rural artisan and Indigenous families, native cotton cultivation supports self-help development programs for the benefit of peasant communities and urban women’s migrant co-operatives. In the High Jungle of Peru, native cotton has already replaced several thousand hectares of clandestinely cultivated coca leaf from which the fatally addicting cocaine paste is synthesized. Today, hundreds of Indigenous farmers benefit from the revival of native and organically grown cotton.

TENCEL® (Lyocell) 4oz / 112g
Great spinning fibre for blending and plying. Hand-dyed using non-toxic dyes.
TENCEL® (trade name of lyocell fibre) offers a unique combination of desirable properties from natural fibres. It’s described to be softer than silk, cooler than linen and more absorbent than cotton. The smoothness of this fibre provides gentle conditions for the skin and has excellent wicking properties.
Lyocell fibre is made from cellulose found in wood pulp from fast growing eucalyptus trees. The fibre is produced via an advanced closed-loop process using a non-toxic solvent where about 99% is continually recovered and recycled during manufacturing (no bleach is required). The European Union awarded this process the Environmental Award in the “technology for sustainable developments” category.
Products made from lyocell are recyclable and biodegradable.
