Please take a minute to click through these pictures. This is silk and mohair. What you’re seeing is sixteen shades of yarn, each a wonderland of subtle color shifting. This is Karida Collins at work, the pride of Baltimore, doing her magic. Look closely—there’s not a solid color to be found, just swirls of shades that shift and change.
We’ve never stocked sixteen shades of one yarn before. But you can see why Loft has caught our imagination. We hope it catches yours, too.
Specs & Details
Everything you make with this yarn will be extraordinary.
These colors—so saturated in the skein, so vibrant—become something very subtle as they are knitted. If you have yet to work with silk and mohair like this, you are in for a treat.
We brought this yarn to the Shop to go with our Sommerfeld Shawl, featured in Field Guide No. 4: Log Cabin. We figured some knitters might want to create their own colorways for this inventive wrap. Pick one skein each of four different shades, or four skeins of one shade if you’re a purist. Whatever you do, it will be lovely.
In addition, we have long admired the patterns over at Churchmouse Yarn and Teas for mohair/silk yarn. These are all beauties:
