PIURA is a two-ply Lace yarn made of 100% baby alpaca wool with a meterage of 400 m on 50g (437 yd. on 1.76 oz.). Due to the slightly firmer twist, the yarn has a sturdy but still extremely soft and silky thread with a delicate fluff.

We source the alpaca wool for CUSCO from Peru, where the animals are kept in their natural environment in the highlands of the Andes. Our Peruvian production partner is fair-trade certified and also a member of the Asociación Internacional de la Alpaca, a non-profit organization that upholds the outstanding Alpaca quality standard and ensures the economic, social and environmental sustainability. The local raw wool is spun directly on site and dyed according to the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 for baby products.

PIURA is particularly versatile. Knitted individually, it is great for delicate scarves, especially lace patterns get a magical look through the light fluff. Worked double stranded in Fingering weight, it creates incomparably soft and light garments and accessories for the whole year.

PIURA also shines as a supplementary yarn and can be wonderfully combined with our Super-Kid mohair yarn PREMIA for an extra portion of fluff, but also gives each of our other qualities even more silky softness and a very subtle fluff.

LAMANA color world: Due to the carefully coordinated colors, our qualities can be combined very harmoniously with each other, but also offer the possibility of light nuances and strong contrasts.

Care: PIURA is hand washable. We recommend the use of a neutral, mild wool detergent without enzymes and plasticizers, in very low doses. Then dry the knitted piece gently lying flat and avoid direct sunlight.
