We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
Mota is a lofty 3 ply, with a strong twist for durability. Because of the loft, Mota can be used in patterns that call for DK, Worsted, Aran and maybe even Chunky weight yarns.
The colors and the tooth of the yarn make it ideal for colorwork.

Mota is sourced and manufactured entirely in the heart of Castilla- La Mancha. Thanks to the proximity of the farms to our mill, Mota is produced with one of the smallest carbon footprints on the market!
With the aim to support small Spanish farms, Mota was developed as a collaboration with several ranching families, each contributing the finest wool their flocks had to offer in order to produce this very special yarn.
