Juniper Moon Farm is a line of carefully sourced and thoughtfully crafted yarns that use fibers grown in Peru, Argentina, Nepal and Italy. Today we're featuring Juniper Moon Farm's Findley and Zooey used in a few great patterns designed using these yarns.

Findley is a lace weight blend of 50% Merino and 50% Silk  - truly luscious! It's super soft and has an oh-so-subtle sheen. Knitting with Findley is a joy as the yarn glides right off the needles. At 798 yds/ball, you can't beat the yardage. Yes - a ball (no winding required!). It's the perfect weight for spring and summer garments and accessories.

Style

Findley in Alloy is simply stunning! The drape makes this sweater so elegant.
