Description

Natural Wool Yarn

This knitting yarn is made up of 72 % thin and soft kid mohair, the top of mohair yarn, and 28 % silk. It is a type of blown yarn, which has the particularity of being light and voluminous. Moreover, the addition of silk gives it a beautiful silky sheen. Unlike regular mohair yarns, the Top Hair is thick and doesn't need to be double knitted. It lends itself quite well for bigger pieces (sweaters, cardigans) without running the risk of stretching because of its excellent knitting properties.
Enjoy the softness of this mohair yarn and use it to knit a sweater, a snood, or mittens. It is knitted using 4.5 mm or 5 mm needles, for denser knit, or with bigger needles (6 or 7 mm) for something more open-knit. Some double stitch types may require to be knitted with 6 or 7 mm needles.
With 5 mm needles, the knit is light but not see-through, because of how thick the yarn is. This needle size is perfect to knit fancy stitches such as the Tilia cardigan. Openwork stitches are best knitted with 4.5 mm needles, in order to obtain a nice finish, like the one of our Memilot jumper.

How many balls do you need?

In order to knit a sweater for sizes S or M, you will need about 250 g of yarn, which corresponds to 10 balls, or 12 for sizes L or XL.
For a 30 cm x 120 cm scarf, you will need about 100 g of Top Hair yarn, or 4 balls. And 50 g of yarn, or 2 balls for a beanie.
Sample
A 10 x 10 cm square of stocking stitches knitted with 5 mm needles corresponds to 16 stitches and 22 rows.
To make a sample, cast on at least 25 stitches and measure outside the selvedge.

J'adore cette laine. J'ai commandé des pelotes en rose et en gris pour tricoter une petite couverture pour un bébé et je suis ravie! La laine (mohair et soie) est vraiment très très douce et ne gratte pas du tout. Les couleurs sont très belles, le rose est poudré et pas du tout flashy le gris est un peu brillant, c'est magnifique. Du coup, j'ai commandé le kit pour faire les mitaines tressées dans la même laine !
