Yarn Bases

Superkid Mohair

72% Brushed Superkid Mohair, 28% Mulberry Silk; Lace Weight

Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place while adding radiance and strength.  Superkid mohair is from the first shearing.  These are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce.  This is a super light and airy yarn that can be worked at many different gauges.  

Approximately 459 yds (420m) per 50g skein.

Suri Alpaca

75% Brushed Baby Suri Alpaca, 25% Mulberry Silk; Lace Weight

Baby suri alpaca is wrapped around a silk core then brushed to produce a super-soft yarn with a light and airy halo.  All yarns have excess fibres from production that might come off, as lint or shedding, in various amounts.  Brushed yarns have more of these loose fibres than other yarns, and tend to shed more.  Some shedding is to be expected with this yarn.  Suri Alpaca is wonderfully versatile and can be used in a wide range of projects. It knits up beautifully on its own using a wide range of needle sizes and can be used as a light DK through to chunky. Combine it with a fingering/sock weight, or DK weight, yarn to add warmth and texture without the weight.  

Approximately 328 yds (300m) per 50g skein.
