The Elena Single by Moeke Yarns is a beautifully organic single ply woollen spun yarn that comes in the most delicious natural shades. This yarn is 100% traditional Romanian wool; from the small farm sourced sheep, to the scouring to the use of traditional Romanian milling methods. Being organic, no harsh chemicals are used in the cleaning of the fleece; this yarn has a high lanolin content (which is excellent for moisturising your hands!). Here is what the folks from Moeke have to say about their lovely Elena:
“This yarn has personality: its twists and curls were worked by machines that are 100 years old. It is honest: it is about going back to basics, to the core of things. Any garment worked in this yarn will have a rustic, rough feel and even basic textured stitches will be accentuated.”
Made in Romania.
