This eco-friendly yarn is produced in traditional way from 100% Transylvanian merino wool. Wool is being bought from local Romanian farmers, cleaned from lanolin, dirt and vegetable matter. It has quite a lot of vegetable matter because sheeps live very close to nature and get really dirty. After that wool is being washed with very hot water and eco-friendly detergent without any harsh chemicals. All this is done to preserve character and natural feel of wool according to the best Romanian traditions of wool producing. After a long procedure of wool cleaning it is being brought to the fiber mill for spinning and dyeing with plants.
This long and careful process and rich history behind makes Moeke Yarns really special and pleasant to work with.
