Honest Hues Pintal Handspun Cotton Yarn (Indigo No.3)

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Introducing Honest Hues, the latest addition to the WithAutumn family, featuring a beautiful array of naturally dyed goods. Our appreciation for nature's palette shines through as we utilise locally sourced ingredients alongside global finds, incorporating food waste whenever possible. Each hank of yarn is artfully dyed by hand in our Singapore studio. 

Pintal is a handspun recycled cotton yarn that came from a spinning mill's cotton fibre waste. In the spinning mill, premium cotton fibre undergo combing and carding during the refining process. The waste fibre from the cotton combing process are then spun by hand into yarn that is characterised by natural specks all over the yarn. We work with women in Indonesia who spin these yarn during their free time in the comfort of their own home. No electricity is used as they use traditional charka to spin them, hence explaining the irregular weight per skein. Please note the weight of each hank is between 100-120g, and could have a maximum of two joints.

Recycled cotton fibre has a shorter fibre length than fresh cotton making hand spinning even more difficult. It takes years of practice and skills for these women to create these beautiful artisanal yarn.
