made in Peru
Leisure Bulky is an exceptionally soft yarn spun from a blend of Superfine Peruvian Alpaca and Pima Cotton. This yarn is designed similarly to crêpe yarns: a thread of Pima cotton is wrapped around the hard-twisted alpaca core, therefore the yarn has a slightly slubbed, beautiful bouclé-like texture, so called Crêpe. Leisure Bulky is extremely soft, and is suitable for any kinds of Fall-Winter knitwear: sweaters, coats, baby knits, and accessories, including handbags and backpacks.
FYI: Wool from Alpacas and Llamas has been blended with Pima cotton by the Incas since the 15th century (1450) to create a heavier, sturdier cloth similar to medieval Fustian - a blend of wool and cotton or linen (it was used for making dresses).
