Mohair + Silk is a gorgeously soft and fuzzy lace weight yarn that would be great for a lace wrap or shawl knit on large needles or add a little extra texture to your project when held double with another yarn. Please not that this yarn is not superwash treated. While this yarn will work beatuifully with superwash yarn, it must be handwashed and air dried.
I looked to March's color of the Month Pom Pom for inspiration. Pom Pom is a coral colorway, but is speckled with rose pink, orchid, turquoise blue, and yellow, so I thought I would create a new colorway using the same colors but with a different application.
I measured out equal parts of the four colors and poured them over the yarn in the same order that I speckled them on Pom Pom, starting with rose pink, then orchid, then turquoise blue, and then finishing up with yellow.
I love the way the different colors over lapped and peak through, but ultimately come together to create something new- a deep and rich emerald green. It feels so unexpected and surprisingly comforting- a feeling I am completely here for right now.
Whirlwind will pair beautifully with Narwhal, Gratitude, Hemlock, Wild Nights, Honeycomb, Sugar Cookie, Divine Feminine, Beauchamp, Oxidize, Blueberry or Pickle.
April's Color of the Month is available on Plush Single, Spontaneous Sock Fingering, and Mohair + Silk. Due to yarn shortages I do not have Spontaneous Sock DK in stock. If I am able to get some before the month is over, I will definitely make it available.

Hand dyed Mohair and Silk (70/30)

This yarn is certified cruelty free.
This yarn is not superwash and will felt. Handwash with luke warm water, rinse with cool and lay flat to air dry.
This fiber was handdyed by ontheround using professional quality acid dyes. I dye my yarn in small batches and no skein will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed yarn so fun!
I do my very best to accurately photograph my yarns but please note that not all monitors are the same. My yarn is made in my smoke-free, pet free studio in Rockland Maine.
