The 70/30 blend of finest kid mohair and silk is as good as it gets. The vivid solids and tasteful, long-colour-run gradients are visually stunning. And it comes from a yarn company that specialises in high-quality yarns, milled in Europe.
The reason we love laceweight mohair blends so much is because of their uniquely versatile characteristics. You can knit simple, lightweight, accessories – cowls, scarves, wraps, capelets – and even cardigans and sweaters, with just one strand of mohair at a very loose gauge in plain stockinette or garter stitch, and they will come out as light and soft as a cloud, while still warm and snuggly, with a magnificent halo. Or, hold one strand of mohair together with any other yarn to knit more robust garments and accessories at a denser gauge. Either way, the mohair adds visual and textural interest. Colour and texture blending with strands of different yarns is so much fun, and so easy to do!
