Soft Silk Mohair

Due to Covid-19 we have been unable to get our Soft Silk Mohair on balls. We therefore offer 5 colors of our Soft Silk Mohair on cones with 200 grams of yarn.

We will soon be able to offer all of our yarn balled again.

Color rain sweater

Made with 8 strands of Soft Silk Mohair, this sweater is soft and light like a cloud! Once you start wearing your Color Rain Sweater, you will never take it off!
An interesting color blending creates a gradient effect that makes the stockinette stitching almost addictive.

Our yarns

All of our yarns consist of 100 % natural fibers.  Our yarns are produced with respect for animals and our environment.   The merino wool comes from an organic farm in Patagonia where mulesing is not allowed, and is then made into yarn in Italy following ethical and environmental guidelines to create a yarn free from harmful chemicals.

Our Mohair comes from goats raised in South Africa according to humane standards.  We categorically reject any mistreatment of animals in the mohair industry or elsewhere.

We believe in high-quality yarn made of pure natural fibres, and do our very best to create such yarn in a beautiful, carefully selected, range of colours.
