85% TANGUIS AND 15% BABY ALPACA Tanguis     (tan-gwiss)     cotton     is     a     Peruvian     cotton which   is   very   soft,   durable,   excellent   absorption   and environmentally    friendly    as    it    needs    less    water    to grow than other varieties. The   Tangüis   cotton   is   grown   in   the   central   coast   of Peru,   it   has   a   uniform   long   staple   fiber   that   produces a   yarn   of   great   regularity.   Tangüis   Peruvian   Cotton   is one of the top ranked in the world. Peruvian   cotton   in   itself   is   very   valuable.   The   specific climate    and    soil    conditions    make    Peruvian    cotton seeds   yield   the   longest   stems   in   the   world,   which coupled    with    perfect    balance    between    resistance and   fineness   make   for   some   of   the   best   regarded materials in the textile industry. Our     baby     Alpaca     yarn     comes     directly     from     the alpacas   living   on   the   highlands   of   Peru   at   an   altitude of      more      than      4,000      meters.      Its      softness      is irresistible,    becoming    one    of    the    most    exclusive yarns in the world. The   filaments   in   alpaca   wool   are   3   times   stronger and    have    an    insulating    capacity    7    times    that    of ordinary   lambs   wool.   Creates   very   warm   and   cosy garments,   but   lighter   than   wool   to   wear.   Very   easy to handle and a lovely yarn to knit with.
