made in Peru
Loosely (core) and tightly (wrap) spun filaments of pure cotton are twisted together, resulting in a beautiful and slightly nubby, crêpe-effect textured yarn reminiscent of silk-bouclé. Because of this special construction, this lovely yarn always stays lofty. Luna is ultra soft, dyed in warm, solid colours, and is suitable for all-year-round sweaters, T-shirts, ponchos, wraps, dresses, accessories, and baby knits.
FYI Pima cotton is prized all around the world as a luxury fiber and is called "Gamuza" by the Peruvians, meaning "Suede" in Spanish because of its silky soft feel and brilliant luster. - Reference: Peru's Textiles.
