FAE is a delicate, lace-weight blend of kid mohair and silk.
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. The dye takes to both very well and we are always fascinated by the way it takes to our colors. The silk core sometimes glows amid the wispy mohair. Fae can be used alone or paired with any other fiber to create something luxurious.

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.
