I always loved the stories about Moomintroll by Finnish writer Tove Janssen. His adventures with Snufkin were always wild yet always ended safely in Moominmamas kitchen eating something delicious. This handspun yarn is all about the magical place around the Moomin house. Moominmamas garden is full of beautiful flowering plants, and in the warm summer evenings all the odd creatures and friends gather at the end of the garden under the forest trees strung with lights, sit around the long tables covered in another one of Moominmamas wonderful feasts and talk about happy times and adventures shared. Such fantastic stories for children, and in my yarn I wanted to capture the colourfulness, the green forest, the bright lanterns and flowers, and create a visual feast that will lead you on your own creative adventure!

This is a special and labour intensive yarn, starting with a fine single spun in merino, then plied with a single green silky thread with the little ribbon loops strung onto it. Then I plied it with another merino single creating boucle loops as I spun, like vines and growing things. Finally I plied it one more time with the green thread, to lock the loops into place.

This yarn is a single skein measuring:

Length: 19.5 meters / 21.3 yards
Weight: 38 grams / 1.3oz
WPI: this yarn has an approximate WPI in the base of about 12, however with the loops and ribbons will knit up more like a bulky yarn.

This yarn is handspun with love, it has its own unique character that adds something very special to your handmade woolen items. I have photographed this yarn as accurately as possible but please bear in mind that everyones screen can display colors differently, so there may be a small variation in the hues. The cute little Moomin characters in the first image are my special find from a recent trip to Sweden, so they have to stay with me :)
