Luna is 4-ply, worsted weight 100% non-shrink ecowash wool. This wool is grown and processed in accordance with GOTS ethical and organic standards, even through the process to make it machine washable. My dyes are not completely organic, so I don't list it as an organic product. It's a fantastic base which, because of the gentler organic processing, retains its wooly characteristics and feel.
200 yards per 3.5 ounce / 110 gram skein.
Gauge: 18-20 stitches / 4 inches on US 6-7
Luna is the worsted weight version of Selene (dk). It is a beautiful 4-ply yarn which works well in a multitude of projects ~ lace, cables, stockinette, colorwork. It's fantastic for baby and child items, or gifts given to non-textile artists, where machine washing is required or inevitable.
Luna is the Roman Goddess personifying the moon. She is often presented as the female counterpart to the sun, and is often depicted driving a chariot drawn by horses or oxen.
