Juniper Moon Zooey DK
Zooey is our new favorite (unexpected) weaving yarn! The slightly nubby cotton and linen blend is a wonderful texture for handwoven towels, and the harmonious earthy neutrals provide so many pleasing combinations for stripes or plaids. Because it's thicker than many traditional weaving yarns, Zooey is also great for rigid heddle weaving!
Of course, we love this one as knitters, too! Summer cardigans, tees and tanks will be delightful in this soft, cool yarn. The subtle differences in how the fibers take up dye make for a nice depth of color, and add to the textural interest. Easy machine washing and drying means that this is a worry-free choice for anyone on your gift list.
