Yaku is a soft 4-ply yarn made from 100 % mulesing free merino of high quality.
This yarn is evenly and tightly spun. In addition to making Yaku easy to knit and crochet with, this gives your project a good stitch definition and a beautiful texture.
Yaku is perfect for baby and children’s knits as it is super soft and not at all itchy.
Yaku is superwash treated in accordance with the high requirements of OEKO-TEX and is machine washable on a wool cycle using a wool detergent.
Yaku is manufactured in Peru exclusively for CaMaRose, and every colour is custom-made in collaboration with the spinning mill.
The environment, animals, and humans are all taken into account in the manufacturing of Yaku. The mill gets the wool from a manufacturer where 70% of the energy consumption is generated by a VESTAS windmill. The manufacturer has a purification plant that cleans and recycles water used in the production and has, in addition, planted a tree plantation around the purification plant which contributes to the purification process and absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere. For the sake of the animals, the mill only works with mulesing free merino fibers and is oeko-tex certified for all its wool products.
Like so many other Peruvian companies, the mill shows great social responsibility for its employees, their families, and the local community by supporting schools, health care, and charities.
The high-quality products, as well as the consideration shown for the environment, animals, and people, are the reason CaMaRose started collaborating with the mill in 2010.
