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.
