Selene is a DK 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.
22-24 stitches / 4 inches on US 3-6.
255 yards per 3.5 ounce / 110 gram skein.
Selene is the dk weight version of Luna (worsted). It is a beautiful 3-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.
Selene is the Titan goddess of the moon. She was portrayed as the moon incarnate by Greek poets.
