Juniper Moon Farm’s Organic Patagonia Merino is a story that’s almost too good to be true: 100% GOTS certified organic, sustainable, non-mulesed, pesticide-free merino wool, all wrapped up in a great big 382 yard/100 gram hank of woolen spun DK weight goodness. All those credentials at an affordable price? Go ahead and give yourself a pinch – you’re not dreaming this up!
While there are always trends that will come and go in the yarn world, here in New England we never stop loving our “woolly wools,” as I call them. You know the ones – Peace Fleece Yarn, Bartlettyarns Maine Wool Yarn and of course [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] . These yarns are our winter season staple, from warm woven blankets to hard-wearing knitted sweaters and accessories. Now there’s a new woolly wool on the block, and its (surprise!) pure merino fiber content makes it far less itchy than its colleagues, while still keeping a lofty, rustic feel and lovely heathered palette. Patagonia Organic Merino by Juniper Moon Farm Yarn is great for projects of any size, and its generous yardage makes it a welcome addition to any weaver’s, knitter’s or crocheter’s stash.
