Peruvian 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. The silky soft feel is a result of the excellent growing conditions in the northern coastal valleys of Peru where it is cultivated.
Peruvian pima cotton is harvested by hand, resulting in a brilliant white shade that can be easily dyed. Cotton harvested industrially leaves scratchy impurities, which affect smoothness and creates a yellowish color to the fiber. This fiber is classified as luxury because of its 1 3/8" length, ordinary cottons measure half to three quarters as much in length.
This fabric can be easily machine washed (gentle) or dry cleaned, is practical and easy to maintain and will last through many years of use.
I have recently purchased Baby Cashmerino yarn from you. My local yarn shop frustrated me with slow and sloppy service and I turned to you since my project had a deadline approaching fast (baby blankets for twin girls due early May). Your service rep was extremely helpful and checked on the spot yarn availability. You had it available and shipped the same day and I got it within 3 days which greatly helped my stress level and now I am almost done with the first blanket and looking forward to start the second. The yarn is beautiful, colors are exactly as shown on your website and exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much. I should have just skipped my local yarn shop and gone directly to you. I'll remember it for the next time. And by the way your price was LOWER than my local shop. Thank you again. You are the best. Gratefully Danijela
