80% Mohair – 20% Silk
An unbrushed, worsted spun 2 ply yarn available in 40 colors.
We recommend working in needle size US 6 – US 11 as these provide a range from soft, draping fabric to an airy, lightweight open lace. The yarn will translate easily from Colinton’s Lace patterns with minimal effort. We always highly recommend washing and blocking the finished piece to smooth the appearance of uneven stitching.
This yarn is our newest addition to our yarn bases. We have combined a new and more genetically refined Young Goat Mohair fiber with silk, resulting in a slightly less dense knitted result. The fiber is extremely soft, providing nearly the same look and relaxed ply angle of our Pure Lace; with little to no halo. It will hold more structure without sliding, as the silk component actually has more of a ‘sticky’ quality about it than the mohair!
