Mango Moon was founded in 2000 with one product: recycled silk yarn hand spun on drop spindles in Nepal by women who were struggling to support themselves and their children. In the years since, the company moved its headquarters to Owosso, Michigan and has added a wonderful range of specialty yarns including recycled fiber hand spuns made in Bali, and mill-spun exclusives you won’t find anywhere else.

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.

Week #3 – Winner Chosen on May 20

Be Sweet’s Extra Fine mohair is hand-dyed for us by women in a job creation program in South Africa. From the more than sixty amazing colors they make for us, five are chosen for each colorway of our Diagonal/Striped Shawl kit.  Extra Fine’s “baby bouclé” texture and ultra-light weight, along with the simple sophistication of this classic rectangular shawl make it a stylish choice for a wrap that goes anywhere, from a breezy park to a night on the town.

The winner will choose from 24 colorways. The kit contains 5 balls of Be Sweet Extra Fine mohair and the pattern. The finished shawl measures approx. 22” x 80”. Pictured is the narrower scarf version, which also can be made with this kit.
