This wool yarn is handspun in small quantities by a worker's cooperative in Morocco, and then hand-dyed in dynamic and unusual colors. The Anou Cooperative is a a group of Moroccan wool spinner and rug weavers who are working together to rebuild their domestic supply chain for locally handspun and hand-dyed materials. They primarily spin yarn for their collective's own weaving projects, and we are proud to be working with them as the only shop in North America to carry this yarn. See photos and learn more about the artisans here.
These huge skeins vary somewhat in size, but are approximately 200 grams (8 ounces). Expect a thick handspun, rustic (but surprisingly soft!) yarn, that may take a bit of work to wind into a ball. But that work will be worth it, and whatever you create will have a piece of the heart and soul of the Moroccan artisans who created the yarn.
