Luna is 4-ply, worsted weight 100% non-shrink wool. This wool is grown and processed in accordance with GOTS 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 new 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 Eos (fingering) and Selene (dk), both of which will be making their debut in 2017. 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.

Luna ~ Christine (pink)


Christine is rather like bubble-gum-pink on steroids. Bright, vivid, intense, strong, and really fun. Semi-solid.

Great on its own or as a contrast color in colorwork.

100% non-shrink organic wool (although my dyes are not all organic), worsted weight.

18-20 stitches / 4 inches on US 6-7.

200 yards per 3.5 ounce / 110 gram skein.

Christine is named for Christine de Pizan (1364-1430), who was unusual for her time because she made her living as an author. She lived a life idealized by many modern feminists that was totally contradictory to that of the typical female of her time, as the sole earner and head of the household. She was the first known French (and possibly European) woman to make her living by her pen, which she did to support her family and to create a more positive view of women in late fourteenth and early fifteenth century France.

Lucretia is a deep mauve-purple-pink, more purple and mauve than pink. Semi-solid.

Lucretia is named for Lucretia Mott (1701-1800), an American Quaker, abolitionist, a women's rights activist, and a social reformer. She formed the idea of reforming the position of women in society when she was amongst the women excluded from the World Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840. In 1848 she was invited by Jane Hunt to a meeting that led to the first meeting about women's rights. Mott helped write the Declaration of Sentiments during the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention.

In her novel Le Promenoir de M. de Montaigne qui traite de l’amour dans l’œuvre de Plutarque she explored the dangers women face when they become dependent on men. She insisted that women should be educated. (wikipedia)
