GODDESS is total lux: a 60/40 New Zealand Kid Mohair and Merino 2ply/laceweight beauty.
The fuzziness of the Mohair in this yarn fluffs out after a wet block. Its not overly fuzzy, but just the right amount so your projects will have a gorgeous halo or glow to them. It's just such an amazing, amazing yarn.
GODDESS is untreated making it an eco friendly option. Hand wash. Dry flat. 50g/450m (492yards)
This yarn has forever changed the way I look at laceweight yarn. I now realise laceweight yarns are stash mobilisers and offer the ultimate in gauge flexibility. This yarn can be held single with a small needle to get a fine fabric, or with a larger needle to get an airy lace. It can be held double to approach a 4ply/fingering weight gauge, or it can be held double with other yarns to make their gauge more flexible! So get a skein or two of GODDESS and go regard your stash with all the new possibilities.
Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous non-superwash New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.
Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
