The Puna Cotton01-01MH-TPCWatermelonMargarita

Finally, introducing our softest and most artisanal fiber ever! The Puna Cotton is made from the coziest cotton available in the whole world, the Pima cotton. Grown by hand in the humid valleys of the north coast of Peru, this fiber is perfect to create cool multi-season projects for you and your home.
Its softness makes it ideal for close to skin projects, baby blankets, and kids clothes. The Puna Cotton is remarkably durable, making this yarn fun for washcloths, macrame market bags, and exclusive home decor pieces.
We weren't kidding when we said it is our most artisanal fiber. Every hank is hand-dyed in small batches by a group of women following the sprinkle dyed technique, making each hank beautiful and unique.
Bringing you the craftsmanship, rich textures, and explosion of color from the Incas to your hands, this yarn is a must for your yarn stash!
