The current color catalog can be found here, but note that in principle all the colors in the catalog can be ordered on any yarn base. Just be aware that the colors play out slightly differently on superwash-treated yarn and untreated yarn.

The softness of mohair is the main determining factor of its quality. Superkid mohair is from the first shearing and these are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce. The second shearing is usually called kid mohair and is still of fine quality, but is not as soft as superkid mohair.

This is a super light and airy yarn and can be worked at many different gauges. It produces gossamer-like items when large needles or hooks are used and soft, fluffy items at tigher gauges. It can also be carried with another yarn to add a delicate haze and to produce a surprisingly warm fabric.

Superkid mohair has a natural pearly lustre and dyes beautifully. It is a protein fibre so can be dyed in similar ways to wool. When dyeing this brushed yarn, do not boil and minimise movement to reduce matting. When dry, fluff up the hank to restore fuzziness, if required. 

With a generous 420 m/459 yds on each 50 gram hank, a little goes a long way. Mohair is not recommended for children under 1 year.

We use acid dyes, which are gentle for the environment and provide vibrant and very durable colors.
