Cloud (named so for obvious reasons) is my latest yarn – aka Kid Silk Lace, it is made from 72% kid mohair and 28% silk. Recently there have been many patterns written for Mohair, having had a resurgence in popularity recently (I am actually writing for this yarn held together with Mulberino 4ply at the moment, more on that to follow). It is light and fluffy and at 420m/50g skein it goes a long way.
I have dyed this yarn as semi-solid colours rather than variegated colourways, however, as with all other yarns on my website, I am happy to create a bespoke order.
A couple of things to bear in mind about hand dyed yarn:
- No two skeins are ever the same, even if they have been dyed in the same pot. I recommend you knit with two skeins and alternate every other row for consistency on larger projects.
- Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure colour-fastness, there is a chance that some residual dye may remain (this is normal – think jeans…) I suggest hand washing all garments in cool water prior to being worn and keep bright colours separate.
