Mooi (pronounced moi) is a unique blend of fibers that combines all of the natural qualities of bamboo, bison and cashmere into an amazingly soft yarn. Mooi is simply a pleasure to knit and adds lustrous color to any project.
This blended luxury yarn was designed by Fibre-Isle in Prince Edward Island, Canada, and was introduced under the Niji brand in march, 2008. Upon discovering that the Niji name is presently in-use by another yarn company, we elected to introduce a new name, drawing from our heritage to select Mooi, which means “pretty” in Dutch.
The bamboo is dyed, while the cashmere and bison content remain natural, producing a stunning and vibrant visual effect. The fibers are blended prior to spinning.
