We've been looking for a mohair yarn that would fit nicely into our shop for a long time - but since making the decision to look further than the UK we immediately looked at Onion's Silk & Kids Mohair. Onion Yarns are a Danish company and they have a passion for producing high quality, sustainable yarns, whilst being sensitive to the impact on the environment.
This yarn is beautiful. The sheen of the silk mixed with the pure fluff of the mohair is delightful!! You can hardly feel it sitting in your hand!
Held on its own for open lace work, or doubled to create a more substantial fabric or held with another strand of a different yarn to for added fluff factor!
Lace weight - 25g balls - 240m (262yrds)
40% mulberry silk - 60% super kid mohair – non-superwash
