When developing their first 100% cotton yarn, the Kelbourne Woolens team was thoughtful in selecting Tanguis cotton from Peru, an economical and environmentally friendly choice. Tanguis cotton was developed to be more resistant to cotton wilt, and thus requires less water to grow in Peru’s climate. The fiber is absorbent, moisture wicking, and resists pilling, due to a “long, but not too long, staple fiber length,” in the words of the folks at KW.
