MilkyMoon is a single ply, fingering weight, 90% merino wool and 10 % Linen, Yarn.
Our yarn names were inspired by the Karoo. Having the 10% Linen in the yarn gives a lovely textured rustic look - as is our beautiful Karoo.
The Linen does not take on the dye as evenly as the merino wool resulting in a delightful highlighting effect. Sometimes the linen is also a little thicker in places so this gives the textured look. This yarn can be used for knitting or crochet. Beautiful for shawls, beanies, pullovers, cardigans, baby blankets and much, much more ...

All our yarns are hand dyed in small batches. This means that from one lot to the next there might be slight variations in colour. If you are knitting or crocheting an item with one 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. Our yarn dying method may result in semi-solid colours and there could be variation of colour in each ball of yarn.
Machine wash on either a gentle/ wool / hand wash cycle. For best results hand wash instead. To dry your garment or Karoo Moon products, lie flat out of direct sunlight. Warning, please do not bleach, iron or tumble dry, as this may discolour or damage your item.
