more than just yarn

It's quite new to fiber history in Peru that natural dyes be applied to thicker bases, such as knitting, crochet or hand loom weights. For thousands of years these techniques have been practiced almost exclusively for backstrap loom weaving that is still today an integral piece of the Andean cultural framework. 

In addition to yarn, Pichinku offers hands-on workshops in dyeing, weaving and spinning at our home in the Sacred Valley of Cusco. We also accept bespoke textile orders in our lower production months.
