SILK MOHAIR contains 57% Mohair, 28% Silk, & 15% Wool. It is the mohair yarn for the discerning fiber artist. Only a few skeins are needed to create an airy and light garment. Perfect for combining with other yarns.
Mohair is wool from the Angora goat. This goat breed has long, silky-smooth, and curly wool fibers. Ordinary wool is added to give the yarn resilience and volume. The silk adds strength and shine while holding the fibers together when the yarn is brushed. The result is a soft, light and airy yarn with a fuzzy texture.

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.
