These colored cottons are grown in Peru.  They spin much like other colored
cottons, with the exception being the mauve variety, a color unique to Peru,
which has a different texture and spins more like a cotton wool blend.

I would not recommend Peruvian Cottons for a beginner, as the staple length
can be shorter than other cottons, thus making them trickier to spin.  In my
opinion, unless you specifically are looking for Peruvian cottons, you are
better off spinning other varieties of colored cotton.

As with all naturally colored cottons, the important things to remember are
the color intensifies when it is boiled, but will fade in sunlight, so protect
articles made from these cottons from the sun.
