Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is a luxurious blend of the finest Kid Mohair and Mulberry silk.

The Mohair comes from angora goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally.  The yarns are traceable back to the individual farms, which means we know exactly which farms, farmers, and goats the wool comes from.

The Silk in the Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they are in conventional silk production.

We advise that Mohair is not particularly suitable for children 1 year old and under, since the lightweight Mohair fibers, while perfectly safe, can cause mild irritation if babies get them in their mouths.

Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair can be used together with a strand from a companion yarn.

Hand washing with wool specific soap recommended. Dry flat.

The garment should be washed separately. For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
