One touch was all it took for us to fall in love with this beautiful yarn from CamaRose.
Yaku is a really soft, 4 ply weight, 100% mulesing free merino in a range of glorious colours.
Each ball is 50g, with 200metres per ball.
The yarn is suitable for both baby, children and adult wear next to skin as it is really soft. It can be wash on a wool program at 30 degrees celecius.
The yarn is evenly and tighly spun which makes it perfect for both knitting and crochet, with a beautiful stitch definition.
A note about Yaku production from CamaRose
Manufactured in Peru, Yaku is specially designed for CaMaRose. All colors are specially developed for CaMaRose in collaboration with the spinning mill.
The production of Yaku takes place in consideration of the environment, animal welfare and people. The spinning mill buys the wool from a manufacturer where 70% of energy consumption is generated by a VESTAS mill. The manufacturer's wastewater treatment plant purifies and recycles water used in the production and has also built a tree plantation around the wastewater plant which contributes to the wastewater treatment process and absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere. The spinning mill buys purely animal mulesing free merino fibers for the sake of animal welfare and is eco-tex certified on all their wool products.
Like many companies in Peru, the spinning mill exhibits a great deal of social responsibility for its employees, their families and the community by supporting schools, health care and charities.
