Mohair is a durable fiber and is notable for its brilliant luster and shine and is often added to other fibers to give them these same qualities. It is naturally elastic, has excellent insulating and moisture-wicking properties which make it a lovely multi-season fiber. It can add luxury to any project.
Silk is strong, inelastic and naturally shiny. It is warmer than wool and naturally absorbent. The combination of mohair and silk creates a shiny, airy, strong fiber.
Fill a sink or basin with warm water and submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there. Soak work for 20-30 minutes, allowing fabric to become completely saturated. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).
We do our best to photograph all our products accurately. We take the photos in our shop using natural light. Further variation can be caused by color differences on your screen and the actual color may be very different. If you have any questions please contact the shop.
