Helarsgarn by Rauma

Helarsgarn in an incredibly soft worsted weight 100% Tanguis cotton yarn.

Peruvian Tanguis cotton, developed by a Peruvian farmer, is ranked among the finest fibers in the world. It is characterized by its resistance and its incredibly soft, long, and uniform fibers. Highly absorbent, Peruvian Tanguis cotton will retain 24-27 times its own weight in moisture. Garments made with Peruvian Tanguis cotton are said to “breathe,” as the fiber absorbs and releases perspiration quickly.

These and other great yarns are now available at What In Yarnation! or online at yarnation.com
