KIDMO SILK LACE: Approximately 50g/465 yards 72/28 superkid mohair/silk. This is a 2-ply laceweight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a pale tonal brown then a light tonal grey and finished with a light wash of pink. The result is a predominantly tonal grey with a bit of beige variegation and a faint pink undertone in areas. It is pretty much exactly the colour of the sun-bleached boards on my back deck! NB: this batch is a little paler/washed out than normal, same colours though.
Silky, hazy, strong, soft, warm! Kid mohair at its loveliest - use this held together with another base for a silky halo or by itself as an accent for interesting contrast in your work. Either way, it's a luxurious blend and a joy to knit (and pet!).
While this base readily sucks up dye, its texture doesn't allow for distinct speckling, so colourways are more mottled or variegated. Also, mohair does not gain much size with blocking so please keep that in mind when planning your project.
For a long, gorgeous life gently hand wash your garment in tepid water, shape a little while wet and lay flat to dry.
