Super soft and floofy kidsilk yarn, perfect for warm lace shawls or holding double with another yarn for patterns such as Love Note by Tin Can Knits and Diaphanous Raglan by Jessie Maed Designs.

Kid mohair comes from the first shearing of angora goats so is fine and soft. Being fluffy it will tickle a little, which like Marmite, some people love and some people don't. But kid mohair is a far cry from the days of scratchy mohair 80s jumpers! This yarn creates a sheer fabric that is ultra-warm and snuggly.
