Elena is a single-ply, sport weight yarn, spun from Romanian wool. It is chemical-free and un-dyed, with a distinctive twisty personality that is a byproduct of the century old machines used in its creation. Expect (and marvel at!) characteristic color shifts and the natural lanolin of the wool, whose intrinsic water-resistance makes Elena an excellent choice for accessories and sweaters. Moeke Yarns recommends that before working with Elena, you wash the skeins in tepid water with a mild pH detergent (we like Soak). This will allow the yarn to blossom, soften, and come into its own!
Please note, actual yardage may vary between each 50-gram skein.
