MoYa Whisper Yarn

Product Description

Product Description


The Whisper yarn is a beautiful range of 100% cotton, hand-dyed yarn in beautiful, soft, powdery colour palettes.  It has a high twist that helps with making defined stitches in knitting and crochet work. 


We love this yarn for making some beautiful and dense pom poms.  The hand-dyed nature of the yarn gives a wonderful variation in colour that adds to the texture of the pom poms.  The yarn comes in 50g balls (130 meters) and is an 8ply.  


This is the yarn we use when making up our DIY gift wrapping packs and also comes in a lovely range of confetti colours.

About MoYa


MoYa Logo


MoYa - sui generis, a kind of its own/unique in its characteristics, this is the essence of MoYa.  


There are so many things to love about this brand of yarn.  Firstly, the use of natural fibres such as cotton and bamboo was high on our list of priorities when finding materials to make projects at home.  A range of beautiful and vibrant colours that have all been hand dyed to give each individual ball its own unique colour.  Yarn that is also easy for little hands to handle so children can start to learn the wonderful craft that involves yarn - from pom pom making, weaving, crochet and knitting.  


MoYa is made near Cape Town, South Africa and started by a mother and daughter team Hester and Martine along with their small team.  They utilise small dye lots around South Africa that use different dyeing techniques which give the final colour you see in each ball their unusual colour.  

Development of Skills

We sourced the MoYa yarn for adults to be able to create their own toys or stimulate some making and creating with older children, although some of these yarns would also suit younger children.  Using yarn for a variety of arts and crafts activities help to stimulate a large variety of developmental skills in the older child (as well as adults!).  

  • Fine Motor Skills:  children will practice their fine motor skills with knitting, crocket, pom pom making and weaving crafts.  But please don't limit the yarn use to only these crafting activities.  Let their creativity run wild.  
  • Communication Skills:  I am hoping adults and children will join in the crafting together which will help develop communication skills with opportunities for bonding.  Older children will also need the ability to follow verbal, written and visual instructions to complete their projects.  
  • Emotional Skills:  Crafting with an adult provides a wonderful opportunity for children to enhance their emotional bond - to provide a supportive environment to talk openly about what is going on in their life, their interpretation of what is going on around them and provide a listening ear.  
  • Thinking & Problem-Solving Skills:  As with most crafting activities, you are promoted to use your brain to problem solve and think laterally - to interpret instructions and then move beyond instructions and make your own patterns and designs.  Encourage children to try their own ideas and if they didn't work out the way they hoped, try exploring why it didn't work and encourage them to try again.

Icon Key

We have created an icon key to make it easier to identify the things you may find important in your purchasing choice and to help let you know what sort of skill development the toys can assist with when your child is playing with the product.

*This information is provided for help with normal development and safety measures should always be taken to ensure children are playing with age appropriate toys (e.g. don't let a small child who is likely to swallow toys to play with an item that carries the Not for under 3 icon). 



Fair trade - products that have been produced in factories/workshop/communities that have fair and safe working conditions

Recycled materials - product is predominately made up of recycled materials - we will include in the product information all of the product parts that contain recycled materials

Non toxic materials - products made entirely of non toxic materials - we will ensure all ingredients/product materials are included in the product description tabs and the safety requirements they meet (e.g. FDA safety)

Fine motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing fine motor skills - the co ordination of the muscles within the fingers, hand and arm that help to manipulate and control objects/tools/materials.

Gross motor skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful to develop gross motor skills - the the co ordination of the large muscles within the legs, arms or whole body and help us move (e.g. running, jumping, climbing, balancing and physical activity)

Communication skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing verbal and non verbal communication skills (ability to read, write, speak, gestures and use of facial expressions).  It is also about developing social relationships with friends and family.

Emotional skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the ability for children to express their thoughts and feelings and recognise these feelings themselves.  Once children are able to recognise these feelings, it is also important for them to learn the appropriate way to respond to them (e.g. not ok to hit when angry).  It is also about developing confidence, self reliance and independence that all lead to better mental health.

Sensory skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the sensory system - taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight and the movement based senses - proprioception (in our joints/muscles that lets us know if our body parts are straight or bent) and vestibular (helps keep our balance).

Thinking and problem solving skills - toys carrying this icon can be helpful in developing the way the brain processes more complex information and then how it responds to this information to help build things like intelligence, memory, creative thinking, imaginative thinking and the ability to complete daily tasks that allow us to function in a community.
