This 100% organic wool yarn from Juniper Moon features 191 yards/sk. Be sure to click on the photos to see enlarged view so you can make out some of the subtle color differences better.

Recommended knit at 4 sts/inch on a US 9, it has a soft hand and quite a bit of spring - which we like because that means the yarn has a lot of elasticity so a garment -even the dramatic cabled coat shown below - will not hang and lose it's shape!

This yarn is really soft knit up, making it great for hats and mittens. And yet along with the softness, it has the "structure" to support a sweater, coat, cabled jacket etc.

In addition to it being merino and organic, it is also MACHINE WASAHABLE at a cool temp (not above 80 degrees). This is NOT a "superwash" yarn, but is gently machine washable.

And it has great stitch definition, as the hat and both the cabled sweater coat and cardigan (Aileas, from Ravelry) garments pictured in the right sidebar demonstrate! The cardigan, Aileas, is knit at 4.5 sts/inch, is a 44" chest and used 7 sks.

And like it's lighter weight cousin, Patagonia, it is also a great value at just $14.99/sk!!
