Description

Monarch Organica Botanical Hand Spun Chunky

Please note that the picture is for color purposes only. The lower picture and main category picture is the true texture of Monarch.

Color: Mossy Rock

This item is certified organic cotton yarn & fair trade.

This is a botanical dyed color. (It is best described as Pewter Gray with a tinge of Green).

This color is Vegan .

Each hank is approximately 75g and is 45 yards average. It is hand spun so the texture is irregular, rustic and very soft.

The average needle used is #11-#13 and it works up at 2 sts.=1" and 3 rows=1" (stockinette). This is an average since the yarn can vary from color to color and sometimes hank to hank within the same color....It also can have color variations from skein to skein. The irregularities are part of the beauty of this very unique eco-yarn. Try working this yarn on a #17 for a gorgeous warm and soft scarf. See patterns & kits.

This yarn is hand spun by native women in Peru, which makes it very special. They earn more than their country's set minimum wage. They are provided food and a very comfortable atmosphere to work in. There is no exploitation of children or slaves wages. This is what "Fair Trade" means. Buying this yarn helps to promote a better life for the hand spinners and their families.

We do our best to detail each color along with displaying the photo, but since monitors vary and if you're not familiar with this yarn, we highly recommend that you buy a color sample card (see Our Products to the left). It is well worth it!
