Purity personified with 100% Merino Wool that is Herco treated. This specialised treatment ensures that these yarns can be washed on a wool cycle in the washing machine. With a wide variation in colours FirstMoon will give you unlimited options for extraordinary characterful garments or any item for that matter. Being our best seller, FirstMoon is our first choice when it comes to knitting or crocheting socks, shawls, light weight sweaters and is sufficiently strong to be used for warp yarns in hand weaving.
But what can I knit?
Well anything really! Our yarns lend themselves to a great array of applications, from socks, to beanies to your next season cardi.

All our yarns are made in small batches and dyed by hand. This means that from one lot to the next there may be slight variations in colour. If you are knitting or crocheting an item with one solid colour and are unsure of the amount that you will need, we recommend adding 2 or 3 extra balls to ensure there are no tonal variations. Plus who really wants to stop mid way to place an order when you are having some much fun?
