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 #4 – Winner Chosen on May 27

SwingBag

Mango Moon hosts a knitting retreat in northern Michigan in the fall, and the hit project at last year’s gathering was this felted messenger bag designed by the leader of the 2015 retreat, Brigitte Elliott. Brigitte is known for Swing Knitting, a German short-row technique that produces lovely designs and is just plain fun to work!

The winner will choose from 8 colorways. The kit contains 7 balls of Dale Garn Hubro 100% wool. Finished size of the bag is approx. 14”w x 8.5”h x 2.5”d.
