Kelbourne Woolens Skipper is a 4-ply 100% un-mercerized cotton yarn, perfect for knitting, crochet, and crafts. Skipper is made of Peruvian Tanguis cotton, a long staple cotton that is soft – but not too soft – and very strong. A delight to work with, its variable gauge makes Skipper ideal for baby garments, summery tees, amigurumi, accessories, or whatever else you’re hoping to create!

Tanguis cotton is absorbent and wicks moisture from perspiration much better than normal cotton, so you can wear natural, breathable garments without synthetic high-tech fibers. Its long staple fiber length is more resistant to pilling and fluffing off on your hands as you work, and is less prone to wrinkling, too!

Impact:
Tanguis cotton was developed to be more resistant to cotton wilt, and as a result is more environmentally friendly! It requires less water to grow in Peru’s climate, and can be harvested up to six times per year. About 80% of the cotton grown in Peru is Tanguis cotton, making it readily available and its use supports existing farms and infrastructure, an important consideration when developing new products for the market.
