Milk Maids is an all time favourite colour, a gorgeous soft cream semi solid that will work well with neutrals and to soften other colours.

This laceweight yarn knits beautifully when held with another yarn and knitted both together to give a soft halo effect on scarves, shawls and beanies.

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.
