Information about Mango Moon: 

"At Mango Moon, we think knitting should be fun, and that we should try to leave the world a little better than we found it. We work with the Nepali Women’s Empowerment Group and a spinners’ co-op in Indonesia to bring you yarns that are colorful and fun, and that help improve the lives of the artisans who spin it. We also carry many high quality mill-spun yarns."
