While vacationing in South Carolina recently, A Great Yarn staff member Karen Young discovered a terrific new yarn, which she insisted we had to bring into the shop. And that we get all 12 colors that the yarn comes in. We wholeheartedly agreed. Moon Shadow is a combination of baby alpaca (68%) and organic pima cotton (32%), and as you might expect it is unbelievably soft. It’s a worsted weight yarn, but it looks and feels much lighter than that. Its chainette construction also gives it great durability, and provides excellent stitch definition.
The folks at Plymouth came up with the name “Moon Shadow” because of how the light is softly diffused by the Baby Alpacas halo, much like the shadow of the Moon. The organic Pima Cotton was added for comfort and durability.
