After a long and laborious process here they are - our first two types of yarns! We named one type Elena in honor of our grandmother - this is the genuine traditional type of yarn that she would have use to make us socks to keep us warm during those cold Romanian winters. The other type we named Stela - the name of our mother, as a symbol of the heritage that is transmitted from parents to children and further.
Of course we also set up a website (www.moeke-yarns.com) and there we told our story, we described our methods of production and we will offer tutorials and free goodies. For starting, I wrote 3 tutorials: on dyeing wool with onion skins, on making herb satchels that can be used to protect wool garments from moths and a free pattern for a knitted pillow cover.
So I guess this is a kind of goodbye - I will not have time to update this blog so often and I will concentrate all my energy in the wool start-up. But if you are searching for some free patterns then I invite you to visit the site some time and who knows, maybe you will find something inspiring :)
