About the ethical provenance of this yarn: The wool tops are from non-mulesed Merino sheep from ethical farms. All the wool is shorn and not a bi-product of the animal skin industry as the sheep are kept for wool production alone. The alpaca is also shorn; the animals are kept for fibre production only.
Collection: Plump DK
Manufacturer: Mrs Moon
Yarn weight: DK
Length: 115m per 50g

Care: Suitable for delicate hand washing. Use a specialist detergent (try Soak!) and do not agitate or twist the fibres to retain the gorgeous softness and shape of your garment.
Because of the roving nature of this yarn (they are single ply, rather than tightly twisted), some shedding may occur. The best way to deal with this is spray your finished garment with water and leave to air dry flat before the first wearing. This sets the fibres and should stop any problems.
