Kid mohair magic

Hi friends

It’s been a busy few weeks since my last post so I thought it’s about time for an update.

Ines’ hand spun silk and machine spun kid mohair bobble yarn is a great hit. We’ve been having a lot of fun developing fun things that show it off to full advantage. Here are some examples…

Working with the Kid Mohair has been a revelation. I really love the way the fibers catch the light and the soft halo around the finished garment like this one:

Well friends, pop in for a visit again soon, we’ll be showing some of our newly developed yarns. Seeing as we no longer are able to get the imported tussah silk,  we’ve decided to develop yarns that are as purely local as possible, hand dyed and eco friendly. I can’t wait to show you.

See you all soon,

happy knitting

    • Hi Helen , thanks for the kind comment, I’m glad you like. It’s a great product to work with and one of the most environmentally friendly, sustainable fibres to wear. I enjoyed chatting with Alosha… hes an interesting guy.
