Mota, a DK weight yarn, is a collection made entirely in the heart of Castilla- La Mancha, Spain, and is named to honor the town of Mota del Cuervo. Due to the proximity of the farms and the mill, Mota is produced with one of the smallest carbon footprints on the market.
With an aim to support small farms, Mota was developed as a collaboration with several ranching families, each contributing the finest wool their flocks had to offer. Mota proves that even the smallest ranches can produce valuable wool. The resulting yarn is a soft and lofty 3 ply, “Z” twist worsted that will give each project a special connection to the origins of their materials. Offering a wide variety of colors, Mota lets your imagination run free!
