Elena was named after the creator of this yarn's grandmother. The values of this yarn stand for being close to nature: no chemicals were used in the processing. This yarn has personality: it has twists and curls that were worked by machines over 100 years old. It is honest: it is about going back to basics, to the core of things. Any project worked in this yarn will have a rustic feel and even basic textured stitches are accentuated. More information about Elena yarn is available here.
Moeke Yarns was created by Ioana van Deurzen and her family to give back to her Romanian community, and to honor her grandmother, Elena. You can hear more about Ioana and her family's journey to create this yarn here.
