CaMaRose Pima Bomuld
This Pima cotton 2/8 is a super soft cotton that is imported from Peru. The cotton fibres come from the seeds of the cotton bush (gossypium). Pima cotton plants grow mainly in northern Peru, where the combination of the soil, the equator sun and the water from the rivers makes Peruvian Pima cotton one of the finest cotton species found in the world. The cotton is hand picked 3 times a year, due to the fact that the fibres are extra long. The Pima fibres are stronger and more durable than most other cotton, it is resists to shrinking and fading.
The dyes used are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® in solid colours made especially for CaMaRose.
Due to the softness of this yarn it is great knitting for babies and children. It stays soft even with washing and is recommended to be wash at a low temperature – 30-40′
