ORIGINAL Wayuu yarn ball/skein - WCO

ORIGINAL Wayuu yarn ball/skein - WCO


This is the one and only ORIGINAL Wayuu yarn. Their most famous raw material for most of their beautiful products. Only one company secretly makes this yarn, and the Wayuu community ONLY buys from them. It's a semi-synthetic textile fibre with a unique and secret recipe that all lovers of crochet and/or Wayúu products will cherish and love to use. In the beginning, the yarn was made from local wool and naturally colored, but as the Wayuu products gained so much recognition, they started to use artificial colors and then manageed to cooperate with a group of entrepeneurs to manufacture their unique yarn. It is now industrially made, but equally special. There have been up to 200 different colors, but because of logistics and the current economic crisis, around 25 colors are manufactured at a time. So the color palette will usually vary from season to season. Don't forget to ask which colors are currently available. Yarn balls/skein are of 40gr weight when used in the Wayuu tradition, but you may order in other presentations too. Your crochet artwork will definitely improve with this yarn!
