Incredibly light and soft, this laceweight blend of 72% kid mohair and 28% silk works beautifully on its own or carried together with another strand. The high mohair content makes for an amazing halo and adds warmth without bulk or weight.
Dyed with plants collected around my neighbourhood in Glasgow, food waste and sustainably-produced raw plant material and dye extracts, these soft shades are light-fast but, like all natural dyes, may change and develop over time, a quality valued by many cultures.
This particular shade was dyed with goldenrod and indigo and is a deep teal with shots of chartreuse.
