KIDMO SILK LACE: Approximately 50g/465 yards 72/28 superkid mohair/silk. This is a 2-ply laceweight yarn.
These were kettle dyed a base of bright yellow-green then washed with chestnut, brown and black for a slightly tonal effect. There is a definite khaki/gold/caramel undertone which may not show up well in pictures. It’s a lovely bronze colour.
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.
