Cowl Kit in
Hand dyed  Silk & Mohair

Heavy Worsted weight
Suggested Needles: 
4.5 mm or 5mm /US 7 or 8

This is a very unusual yarn, the silk fibre is from wild silk and has a lot of texture and  tiny bits of the cocoon. The mohair is not spun to be fluffy or curly.  The mohair fibre was mixed with the silk in spinning. This yarn is spun very lightly so needs a gently hand in knitting or crocheting and would not be good for warping in weaving. It has the look of a hand spun yarn rather then a commercial spun yarn. 

Also I have the same yarn in a finer weight but it came ready dyed but in such a magnificent blue I had to buy it.
