This yarn is soft and squishy. It is highly recommended for babies and children, next to skin wear, delicate shawls and light weight sweaters.

The yarn is made from wool of the Merino d’ Arles sheep from Southern France, which are guided to the mountain pastures every summer following a centuries-old tradition. It is said to be one of the softest european wool. Spun in great Britain.

I named the yarn Mokosh after the slavic goddess of soil, fertility and spinning. The celts settled amongst other areas also in France. In the area where i live now there used to live slavs. Therefore i chose these names and connections.

Due to dyeing with plant dyes there is a natural variation within hanks of the same dye lot. To maintain an even appearance in larger projects I suggest to alternate skeins while knitting. The madder dyed skeins may have some red spots in them.

I take great care photographing my items, but please take into account that colours might vary slightly due to different monitors.

Please hand wash in luke warm water and a good eco wool detergent. Lay flat to dry.
