This Merino is produced with the same spirit of sustainability that drives all of WoolDreamers. With the aim of supporting small wool producers, Mota was developed as a collaboration with several local ranching families - each contributing the finest their flock had to offer in order to produce this very special yarn.
Mota is produced entirely in Castilla-La Mancha and is named after Mota del Cuervo, the hometown of WoolDreamers. With the farms and mills so close, Mota has one of the smallest carbon footprints of any yarn.
Spun from carefully selected fleeces from each ranch, Mota shows that even the small ranches can produce valuable wools. The resulting yarn is a soft and lofty 3 ply DK to worsted that will give each project a special connection to the origins of their materials. We swatched Mota on a variety of needle sizes and found that it can be worked as a DK up to a worsted and loves colorwork! Our test knitter reported that it behaves similarly to Lopi yarn but significantly softer.
