KIDMO SILK LACE: Approximately 50g/465 yards 72/28 superkid mohair/silk. This is a 2-ply laceweight yarn.
These were kettle-dyed a bright mottled pink/magenta/hot pink using all my bright pink dyes. Then they were speckled with fuchsia, hot pink, bordeaux, yellow, red, caramel and a bit of grey. The hanks are not twisted prior to speckling so coverage is more random. This is a highly variegated, bright colourway and each hank is slightly different. Oink Ponk you ask? My two most common typos when I am writing “pink” ;)
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 damp and lay flat to dry.
