HOW Pakucho YARN GOT STARTED

Naturally pigmented cotton and fine textiles have been produced for nearly five millennia in Peru, constituting the oldest recorded tradition of spinning and weaving in human history. Over a decade of ethnographic, botanical and archaeological research by the Native Cotton Project of Peru, trademarked in 1994 as Pakucho, has led to the identification of pre-Columbian farming techniques for sustained cotton harvesting and environmental resource management. As steward of this unique genetic resource, Pakucho has recovered a wide range of naturally colored cotton fiber, including cream, beige, brown, rust, chocolate, mauve, green and other earthy tones. No dyes, chemicals or other synthetic processes have been used to grow, soften, or color the fibers of these yarns.

Pakucho is the first Latin American enterprise to develop, spin and weave naturally colored and organically grown cotton fiber on an industrial scale. They offer carded and combed, as well as open end, yarns, in counts from Ne 6/1 to 36/1, in natural white, beige, brown, green, chocolate and mauve colored fibers.

Using authentic and esthetically pleasing Andean fibers and fabrics not only ensures the continuity of this noble and ancient textile tradition, but it also encourages the revival of environmentally conscientious practices, goals now shared by Old and New World peoples of the most diverse ethnic and cultural heritages.
