A wonderfully soft blend of GOTS-certified cotton and Peruvian alpaca wool results in great year-round yarn. Suitable for light garments and accessories, Puno feels divine while wearing and knitting. You won't want to put your needles down. These beauties are un-dyed–the neutral color palette is thanks to the natural fibers of the cotton and alpacas.
