We are so excited! This new yarn from Ancient Arts just arrived! Caroline Sommerfeld tells us her Delicacy is a yummy blend of 75% super kid mohair and 25% silk lace yarn and it passed all her tests for being the just the right yarn to bring into her studio.
So what was she looking for with this yarn?
"I wanted a yarn that could be used either on it’s own or in conjunction with another yarn. Holding a strand of a super kid mohair silk lace weight yarn with another yarn when knitting makes for an amazing fabric if it’s the right lace yarn. I wanted a yarn that would dye in intense colours, and that could stand up to being paired together without the pile collapsing or disappearing right away, but it also had to be strong enough to give the knitting some body. A higher proportion of mohair spun just the right way was the right answer and I can safely say the results are amazing!"
