With luxury, softness, shine, drape, Moonshine lives up to its name! The organic silk content makes the colors glow, while the wool and alpaca make for a soft and pliable yarn.
Fans describe it as “like snuggling a kitten” and “like knitting with butter.” But even though Moonshine is soft, the silk allows it to produce good stitch definition. They also say it blocks well and doesn’t stretch much. However, they warn that it does have a tendency to pill, so it is best to use it on low-friction items.
Moonshine yarn is suitable for shawls and accessories and luxe sweaters. Make something elegant and lustrous for yourself, you deserve it.
