made in Peru
Estelle Arequipa is not only a perfect, machine washable sock yarn dyed in beautiful, deep colours, but it is also an amazing solution for fall-winter pieces of clothing in painted hues and lovely accessories knitted or crocheted in open-work patterns: scarves, light jackets, shrugs, opera gloves, etc.
FYI Arequipa is the Peru's second largest city and the capital city of the Arequipa Region (southern Peru). The historic centre of Arequipa was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, in recognition of its architecture and historic integrity: "Arequipa lies in the Andes mountains, the snow-capped volcano El Misti overlooks the city."
