Soft Silk Mohair
This whisper-thin yarn is fluffy on the outside with a little shimmer of silk at its core. It could be put to good use made into garments and shawls that will turn out cozily furry and light as air. Most knitters and crocheters will prefer to use this laceweight yarn held double with another yarn. Combining silk/mohair blends with other yarns not only adds wonderful, fuzzy texture; it also boosts the fluidity and drape of more rigid fibres.
Knitting for Olive has made it easy to mix and match their beautiful silk-mohairs with their other yarn types. Try pairing Soft Silk Mohair with the worsted weight Heavy Merino or the fingering weight Merino, or even with the luxurious Pure Silk.
Knitting for Olive mohair is raised in South Africa according to humane standards. In fact, Knitting For Olive keeps a keen eye on their entire supply chain to make sure all their yarn is produced to their high ethical requirements.
