Yaku is a soft 4ply yarn made from 100% mulesing free merino. This yarn is evenly and tightly spun which make it easy to knit and crochet with, giving your project good stitch definition and a beautiful texture. Yaku is superwash treated in accordance with the OEKO-TEX requirements and is machine washable on a wool cycle using a gentle wool wash/detergent.
Yaku is manufactured in Peru exclusively for CaMaRose. 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, healthcare and charities.
