Superkid Mohair & Silk Hand Dyed Tempest

Regular price $33.00 AUD

Tempest is another colourway I have across a number of bases. This versatile crimson and purple variegated colourway would combine beautifully with Tempest on my merino nylon sock or my 4 Ply Pure merino base to give a wonderful fluffy feel to your knitting.

This lace weight yarn with the softer and rarer Superkid mohair is used to produce this soft and luxurious mohair/silk yarn.

Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place to add radiance and strength. Gentle enough for next to skin wear. 

Superkid mohair is from the first shearing and these are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce

With 72% Superkid Mohair and 28% Mulberry Silk this is the perfect yarn for a carry along yarn or for those very delicate knits.

Caring for your yarns

These are delicate yarns, strong but very fine. I recommend a delicate wool wash and hand washing in cool water. The fibres may flatten when washed and can be carefully fluffed to restore the halo.
