Yarn Weight: Lace Weight, single ply construction

Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place to add radiance and strength. Gentle enough for next to skin wear.
The softness of mohair is the main determining factor of its quality. Superkid mohair is from the first shearing and these are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce.
This is a super light and airy yarn and can be worked at many different gauges. It produces gossamer-like items when large needles or hooks are used and soft, fluffy items at tighter gauges. It can also be carried with another yarn to add a delicate haze and to produce a surprisingly warm fabric.

Suggested Needle/Hook Sizes and Gauge:
Needle Size 3 - 4mm (US 2.5-6) needles and C -G hook
Gauge (stockinette stitch): 32sts x 40 rows over 10cm (4 inches) on 3.25mm (US 3) needles

Care Instructions:
Hand wash using a wool detergent, ideally below 30°C, avoid wringing and twisting. Dry flat out of direct sunlight, do not spin or tumble dry.

The wool used in this yarn is ethically produced from sheep that have NOT been mulesed.
