Sport Weight Yarn 3 ply
50% Mohair, 50%Wool
238 m / 110 g (260 yds / 3.9 oz)
This is a soft yarn similar in texture to Belles BouclettesAmelia (60/40 mohair/wool blend) (for anyone lucky enough to have touched or worked with it). It has a minimal halo, blooms a very little when washed and works into a soft fabric with good stitch definition. While not as velvety soft as some other yarns it is still next-to-the-skin-soft and can be made into a wonderful variety of projects. You might want to look at the on our Fibre Inspirations page for an idea of how this will look when knitted. Those were made with the Amelia yarn mentioned above but we are fairly confident that this will look and feel very similar when knitted and blocked.
These skeins were spun using the fleeces from our goats. Their fleeces were blended with wool for added memory to help your garments keep their shape.
Using acid dye we dyed these skeins in different colours. Mohair lends itself especially well to dyeing, keeping its sheen while taking and holding dyes in clear vivid shades.
