In 2013, Mango Moon became the exclusive North American distributor for Dale Garn, the well-respected producer of such perennial favorites as Baby Ull, Falk, and Heilo, and the source for classic Scandinavian sweater designs and the best baby items that have become heirlooms in many families.
Just last year, Mango Moon acquired the Be Sweet line, whose reputation for quality yarns and social responsibility made it a wonderful fit. Many of Be Sweet’s yarns are hand-dyed for us by women in a job creation program in South Africa. Expansive color ranges and simple, sophisticated patterns are the hallmarks of the Be Sweet brand.
Grand prize – Winner Chosen on June 3
Freestyle knitting, almost like painting with yarn, is a great source of joy to many an experienced knitter. Wonderful patterns like the Shade Jacket and the River Run shawl, both designed just for Mango Moon by the wonderfully creative Christie Furber, make this joyful way of knitting accessible to any knitter.
Start with this specially-selected combination of yarns—over 1,000 yards in all—the perfect jumping-off point for a freestyle knitting project. (Yarn substitutions may occur within the colorways.)
The winner will receive their choice of our 13 fabulous colorways, PLUS our best-selling River Run pattern, PLUS a $75 credit toward Dale Garn and Be Sweet yarns of their choice. It’s a great chance to put together all the yarns you want to use in a River Run creation of your very own. And you’ll have fabulous stash additions to launch further knitting adventures!
