Silky Mohair Graphite is an excellent quality yarn made in Japan from the highest category Super Fine Kid mohair (24 μm) and Mulberry silk. The higher silk content than the usual mohairs available means that it is wonderful to wear on the most sensitive skin. Mohair is known worldwide as “the noble fibre” or “the diamond fibre”. Its exclusive qualities – lustre, resilience and colour reflection – have been its success. Glossy silk and fluffy kid mohair unite in this radient yarn to create luxuriously lightweight garment with amazing stitch definition and drape, keeping you comfortable and chic all year round. Silky Mohair is one of the best yarns that can be created by human hands and grown by nature.
Mohair has many natural qualities which are enhanced by silk. Because of its flexibility, mohair is rated as one of the world’s most durable fibres. Mohair responds magnificently to dyes, retaining even the most brilliant colours over time. Thats why the colours are so bright and rich. Mohair breathes, absorbing and realising atmospheric moisture and controlling its own “climate” to ensure optimal comfort. It is very versatile fibre: cool in summer and warm in winter. Products made from mohair have an innate elasticity, which ensures they hold their shape. The natural lustre of both fibres gives garments a silky sheen and makes them ideal to wear day or night.
Silky Mohair can be knitted alone for lace projects or held together with another yarn to add fluffiness and subtle glow. It is also beautiful held double for a thicker weight yarn. You can visit our blog or Facebook profile of Siulo galas to find more knitting ideas.
