Milo is a beautiful DK weight yarn from our friends at Manos del Uruguay! Milo (pronounces ME-low) is rustic yet elegant and is great for any project where you want good drape. We love these space-dyed colors and we think you will too!
Milo is a Merino/Linen blend, so you get the knitability of Merino with the drape of the linen. In addition, the two fibers take the dye differently so you get a natural, subtle heather. As the linen lightens the yarn, you also get good yardage on the skein.
Milo is 65% Merino, 35% Linen
approx 380 yards per 100 gram skein

Berroco and Jagger are multi generational New England companies that each have over 100 years of experience in the yarn world.
Trendsetter was started by Barry Klein and his mother over 30 years ago. They not only source some of the most beautiful and unique yarns largely from Italy, they also bring us Cardiff Cashmere, spun in a small, family mill that only spins cashmere.
Prism, Mountain Colors, and Mrs Crosby are more examples of small, independent hand dyers we’re delighted to carry in the shop.
Addi needles and Brittany needles are more multi-generation stories that, in our opinion, bring the quality and value that is unsurpassed in the industry.
In the shop we have over a ton of yarn as well as a million stories. We're delighted to continue this tradition for fiber fans everywhere.
Thank you for your support.
Kris, Oz, and the whole Ball & Skein family.
