Pascuali Puno Winikunka
Much like Pascuali Puno, except with a rainbow of stunningly dyed hues. This wonderfully soft blend of GOTS-certified cotton and Peruvian alpaca wool results in great year-round yarn. Suitable for light garments and accessories, Puno feels divine while wearing and knitting. We can see some gorgeous colorwork projects in our future!
Story: The mystical mountain Winikunka, also known as “Rainbow Mountain” or “Seven Colour Mountain” served as the inspiration for this yarn. Intense green, purple, yellow, red, and blue make the amazing range of colors which are the result of sedimentary rocks eroding for millions of years.
