Jana, from Handmaiden says this about Wisp SuperKid Mohair, "It's like knitting with "a magic cloud". So soft. Around your neck soft and not prickly. I've been wearing a wisp turtleneck!" And Ruth from Todwick Studios says, "I refer to Wisp as the "cashmere of mohairs" as it is so unbelievably soft, warm and light."
We couldn't agree more - milled in South Africa, Wisp is one of the softest mohairs we have ever worked with. And it's thicker than others. One strand of Wisp feels like two strands of others. We love the fabric it makes and we highly recommend it for one of our favourite designs, the Whisper Popover by Todwick Studios.
