Mohair is a Lace weight base that boasts 229 yards (210 m), it comes in 25 g skeins and is made up of 72% Mohair and 28% Silk.
The Mohair for this base is sourced in South Africa, from a bio-diversity-friendly, clean and ethically compliant mill.
If you are looking to add just a touch of warmth to your projects, Mohair is a great choice and if you pair the colors just right, you will find the most unique marled fabric. From texture, airiness, and depth of color, this is the base you never knew you needed but won’t be able to live without!
Great for: Lace, shawls, scarves, lightweight garments. Works well double-stranded for accessories, garments, color-work and combined with other yarns!
Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
When we dye our yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.
When we assign a dye lot number the main use is to identify which skeins can be labeled and packed together. After our quality control team checks the skeins, they go to the labeling section and then are put in bags of five or ten (depending on the yarn).
Once the bags get to the yarn stores, most skeins go to different shelves where they can get mixed. The dye lot code is really helpful when you try to find skeins that match.
Unfortunately, we don't have a record of which yarn store receives a specific dye lot and it's impossible for us to find out where you can find the same dye lot skeins.
The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
