Sapphires are the New Diamonds
56% Extrafine Superwash Merino 44% Superkid Mohair Singles Yarn
Approx. 360m/100 gram hank
This singles yarn is next to skin soft, slightly fuzzy and has a beautiful pearly lustre due to the fineness of the mohair used. The mohair is not brushed but the singles construction allows the mohair fibres to bloom and form a delicate halo around the strand. It knits up into warm and lightweight items. Although technically a fingering weight yarn, you can also treat it like a thicker sport weight yarn, and knit on larger needles. This allows the mohair fibres more room to bloom and reach their full fuzzy potential. It is delightful worked up into lightweight shawls, cardigans, hats and cowls.
Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 - 4mm needles
Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches
on 3.25mm (US 3) needles
Hand dyed yarn can very from skein to skein, even within the same dye lot. Please take care to purchase enough yarn to complete your project.
Although this yarn contains superwash merino, it is recommended that knitwear is hand washed. Please use cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry.
