Shine On, Cider Moon

Two friends drawn together by their love of fiber and color, Gail Alsdorf and Jacki Vance-Kuss founded Ohio-based Cider Moon in 2005, quickly expanding from their fabric lines into hand-dyed roving and yarns — even chainmail jewelry.

Cider Moon yarnsTheir yarns have names like Adagio, Champagne, Icicle, Haiku and Whisper, with each representing a particular weight, style and blend. For instance, Adagio is a bulky mohair boucle that knits up on size 13 US needles. In contrast, Haiku is a soft, lovely silk merino destined for use by size 1 US needles. And what do I have above? These are 4 skeins of Glacier, 100% Extrafine DK weight merino, cheek-soft and oh, so squishy:

A. Habanero
B. Prickly Pear
C. June Carter
D. Sweet Potato Pie

Heads up, all you Loopy Groupies: a selection of Cider Moon yarns will also be available through The Loopy Ewe. Way to go, Ohio!
