Manufactured in Peru, Yaku is specially designed for CaMaRose. All colours are specially developed for CaMaRose in collaboration with the spinning mill.
The production of Yaku takes place in consideration of the environment, animal welfare and people. The spinning mill buys the wool from a manufacturer where 70% of energy consumption is generated by a VESTAS mill. The manufacturer's wastewater treatment plant purifies and recycles water used in the production and has also built a tree plantation around the wastewater plant which contributes to the wastewater treatment process and absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere. The spinning mill buys purely animal-based merino fibre for the sake of animal welfare and is eco-tex certified on all their wool products.
Like many companies in Peru, the spinning mill exhibits a great deal of social responsibility for its employees, their families and the community by supporting schools, health care and charities.
The high-quality requirements of the spinning industry for their products as well as consideration for the environment, animals and people in their production are the basis of the cooperation with CaMaRose since 2010.
