ISAGER SILK MOHAIR is with its blend of 25% silk and 75% wool a beautiful, soft and shiny yarn with a light and fluffy structure. We use it primarily together with other yarns, but it is also beautiful used individually perhaps especially in a simple design. A structured pattern will not show in this yarn, unless the Silk Mohair is knitted together with another smoother yarn. As Silk Mohair is soft and fluffy, some shedding must be expected both while knitting and from the finished project. The shedding will deteriorate in time but please consider with which garments Silk Mohair is worn. Isager Silk Mohair is of finest quality with long fibres which reduce shedding.
Silk Mohair is used primarily together with other of our yarns. Here are some suggestions:
Silk Mohair and Spinni held together are knitted on 4 – 6 mm needles
Silk Mohair and Highland or Tvinni held together are knitted on 4 – 7 mm needles
Silk Mohair and Isager Tweed held together are knitted on 4 – 7 mm needles
Silk Mohair and Jensen Yarn held together are knitted on 4.5 – 7 mm needles
Silk Mohair and Aran Tweed held together are knitted on 4 – 7 mm needles
The yarn can be knitted on much larger needles for shawls, scarves and other light and open garments.
