Mohair by Canard
50 grams per bundle.
Mohair yarn of 65% kidmohair and 35% of the softest merino wool. The yarn is very light and has a lenght of meters of about 350 m / 50 grams and is knitted with a needle size of 2 – 3 1/2 mm.
Our 1-ply kidmohair yarn is very popular for smaller things. Due to the long length, with only a few bundles you can knit or crochet large amazing shawls etc. Since the yarn is offered in many colors, you have the opportunity to make your very own color combinations by knitting two threads together of different colors.
The 1\-ply yarn is also very suitable for mixing with other yarns, as the softness of the mohair clearly comes through if mixed with a slightly hard yarn. Even the lightest and thinnest shawl of this yarn provides good heat, without filling much.
Several of the colors are reoccurring in our other types of yarns, so mixing our different qualities in the same color can provide great unique knitting experiences for the creative.
Kidmohair is a natural product of the highest quality from South African Angora herds. South Africa currently accounts for approximately 50% of the world's mohair production, and this status gives rise to great responsibility for production methods and quality.
The angora beds are mowed twice a year either by hand or by machine. The animals are in no way harmed in this process.
The mohair is sorted by length, fibre diameter and quality.
The wool is then washed, carded and brushed to the top, from which it is spun.
The yarn is dyed before or after spinning, depending on the look desired in the finished yarn
