KIDMO SILK LACE: Approximately 50g/465 yards 72/28 superkid mohair/silk. This is a 2-ply laceweight yarn.
These were dyed in a crowded pot with washes of red, fuchsia, mahogany and scarlet then speckled lightly on top with hot pink, yellow, bordeaux and scarlet. They are variegated and each hank is unique though all share the same colours. Please alternate hanks if using more than one.
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.
