MoYa organic cotton
MoYa is a 100% organic cotton DK yarn with a high twist from South Africa.
This yarn is very suitable for both knitting and crochet.
Please note! MoYa always has colour shades, even in one ball.
Knitwork made with MoYa has that soft sturdiness and airiness of good quality cotton. The yarn has a lovely soft and yet robust feel, when knitting or crocheting.
MoYa yarns are handdyed and unique, no two balls are the same. There are nuances in the depth of colour even in balls of the same dyelot. This results in a playful, uneven colour effect in your knitting. If you don't want to emphasize this washed out effect on big projects, it's best to work with multiple balls at once and alternate every other row.
Available in several plain and variegated colours, which are great to combine.
Suitable for needles 3-4 (US 3-6; UK 11-8)
Great yarn for both knitting and crochet
Per 50 gr ball, length approx 130 m
Robust looks, soft to the touch
Hand dyed: uneven, washed colour effect
100% organic cotton
Machine washable on a delicate cycle (please note: wash separately the very first time).
How much yarn do I need?
To give you an idea, here's an indication for some standard-size projects:
- Small cushion: 2-3 balls.
- Baby Blanket: 8 balls.
- Women's jumper size 40: 10-12 balls.
Please note that some patterns, like cables or a long vest, require more yarn than a standard stockinette stitch sweater.
Also, crochet usually requires approx. 30% more yarn than knitting.
