Item details


100 % organic merino wool from France

This yarn is soft and squishy. It is highly recommended for babies and children, next to skin wear, delicate shawls and light weight sweaters. With each colour comes a postcard with an illustration of the plant by Isabelle Fuss ( All plant material that was used was collected by myself around our house, an old water mill, in northern germany. In the case of Avocados and Pomegranate the skins were collected by us and friends from kitchen leftovers. The only mordant that i used was ashes from the camp fire.

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. Guaranteed good for environment, sheep, and humans.

The yarn is a limited edition. Referring to the celtic holidays there will be a new batch of yarn every three month with 5 colours. This is the very second batch, made around Imbolc in febuary. 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.

100 g ~ 400 m
3,6 oz ~ 436 yards

Needle size 2.50 - 3.00 mm / US 1.5 - 2.5

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.

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.

Please read the terms and conditions and shipping costs prior to your purchase.
