Product Details

Jutting up over 18,000 feet, Mount Saint Elias is the 2nd tallest mountain in both the United States and Canada, as it sits right on the border.  Elias is referred to as having the ‘planet’s longest skiing descent’.  What a perfect comparison for a luxurious yarn that goes on and on AND ON as far as softness?  Elias is velvety soft merino fiber, spun into a lovely single ply, then hand-dyed by Jennefer Marker of Compass Moon Creations based on the Idaho/Washington border, inspired by colors in creation & everyday life as seen and experienced by her and her family.   

Lightweight and airy! Elias is perfect for lightweight shawls, summer tops, and other projects where you want a delicate yarn. Since Elias is a single-ply merino wool yarn, it will make a soft and smooth fabric that blooms wonderfully and blocks well. When used in colorwork the lines between the colors will have less harsh edges than a plied yarn will.

About Compass Moon Creations

Compass Moon Creations is the passion project of Jennefer Marker. From a little girl sitting in front of a knitting tower to a young woman knitting her first scarf to combat the frigid Minnesota winter to the north Idahoan craftswoman she is today, Jennefer found herself questing for a better, softer yarn. That is until she learned to create it herself. Over the past seven years, she has taken Compass Moon Creations to new heights, crafting and hand dyeing beautiful yarns, fibers, even stitch markers!

Jennefer strives to support the Northwest fiber farm community, and her fiber is primarily sourced from over 22 local hobby farms, homegrown from happy, healthy Inland Northwest sheep. Jennefer’s whole family gets involved with prepping the fleeces to make something special with them! Handspun and hand-dyed yarn, gorgeous carded art batts for spinning and felting, dryer balls, felting supplies, fiber locks and so much more! She primarily uses sheep’s wool, alpaca, and goat fiber, but will spin and use everything from angora rabbit to camel….whatever soft, luscious stuff she can get her hands on! Besides yarns and fiber goodies, Jennefer also enjoys creating funky stitch markers, earrings, and *bling* that promote fiber & yarn love!
