We love Moeke yarns. We love its natural nature and strong eco credentials! Ioana is the joint owner of Moeke yarns and lives in the Netherlands. The wool for Moeke Yarns comes from sheep living closeby Ioana's family village near Oradea in Romania. The sheep graze freely. The wool is only washed with warm water, salt and then mild eco-friendly detergent.The wool is then spun in a traditional spinning mill in Romania. After the wool comes back from the mill, it is washed again with eco-friendly detergents, sodium bicarbonate and finally they rinse it in water with vinegar. Their yarn is a minimally processed yarn, that means that it still has some vegetable matter and lanolin in it, as a result of not using any harsh chemical agents during the production of the yarns.
