Where it all began!

ISKAY is the signature Pichinku base, paying tribute to the rich Andean fiber tradition that brought alpacas to the world. Luxurious high twist, superior snuggliness and beautiful tone depth within each skein.

For pattern ideas, have a peek at projects on Ravelry including “The Blair Shawl” by Vanessa Coscarelli Black and the “Lots of Lotus” cowl.

Please note that colors will vary between computer-phone-tablet monitors and dye baths, and though we try our best to post color-accurate photos, variations should be anticipated. For any questions or concerns about color exactness, please contact us!

Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend hand washing in cold water with a drop of pH neutral detergent, avoiding agitation, laying flat to dry.
