Lace Weight Yarn
72% SW Merino 28% Mulberry Silk

Superkid mohair is used to produce an exceptionally soft and luxurious mohair/silk yarn. Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibers in place to add radiance and strength. Gentle enough for next to skin wear.
The softness of mohair is the main determining factor of its quality. Superkid mohair is from the first shearing - these are the softest and finest fibers 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 459 yds (420 m) in each 50 gram hank, a little goes a long way.
