The perfect mohair blend fingering weight yarn. Silky soft with minimal halo this will work up into wonderful garments you'll look forward to wrapping around you come autumn's crisp and winter's snowy days.
We carefully chose these hand-dyed mini skeins to match Valentine's Day theme.
Enjoy knitting this up into scarves, hats and lacy shawls.
Content: 75% Mohair, 25% Wool
Wraps Per Inch: 21
Yardage of each mini-skein: approx. 65 m (71 yd) per 20g (0.7 oz)
Total yardage: approx. 325 m (355 yd) per 100g (3.5 oz)
We carefully hand dyed (kettle dye) some of our skeins in small batches using professional acid dyes. They were rinsed (until the water runs clear) and washed using Kookaburra Delicate ( a delicate wool wash with unique blend of Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil) .
The colours are rich, vibrant and will be long lasting.
To minimize our environmental impact during the whole dyeing process, ( and when season permits it of course), we use water collected in our rain barrel instead of our well's water.
Each skein is unique (even dyed together). Some skeins have more or less of each of the colours and some may be slightly uneven coloring due to the kettle dyeing process. This makes them special, one of a kind.
Hand wash gently in cool water with a wool wash of your choice . Lay flat to dry.
Colours MAY bleed slightly on the first few washes (though we take care to ensure no colours bleed on the final rinse). This is not abnormal and can be due to differences in water chemistry. Please use caution and hand wash in cool water your finished item separately or with similar coloured items .
