274 m /110 g (300 yds / 3.9 oz)
Equal parts of our white alpacas' and angora goats' (young adults) fleeces were used to spin these skeins. Their fibre was blended with wool for added memory to help your garments keep their shape. Enjoy the kitten soft feel of this blend, along with the extra strength and warmth that mohair contributes to this lustrous yarn.
With the mohair's strength (it has been called nature's nylon), the alpaca's extra warmth and the wool's elasticity this is an outstanding yarn with which to knit socks. Its lovely texture also makes it an excellent choice for next to the skin wearing, try it in scarves, shawls, cowls or in an item for a very special baby.
Using acid dye we dyed some skeins in different colours. Mohair lends itself especially well to dyeing, keeping its sheen while taking and holding dyes in clear vivid shades.
