KIDMO SILK LACE: Approximately 50g/465 yards 70/30 kid mohair/silk. This is a 2-ply laceweight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed with washes of red, fuchsia, coppery brown and navy blue with the yarn crowded in the pot so it’s mottled and variegated. Finally, they were glazed in a with a dark blue-black wash. I used the same colours as Bluebeard at Night but a totally different method. Note that these hanks share the same colours but that they are all slightly different so you may want to alternate hanks if used together.
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.
