Selene is a DK 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.
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 Eos (fingering) and Luna (worsted), both of which will be making their debut in 2017. 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.
