handdyed yarn in wonderfully soft thick mohair in colors inspired by the forest.
Chunky Mohair from Unique Yarns is a luxurious Italian yarn. Mohair's ability to retain warmth is about twice that of wool. This yarn gives thick, but at the same time light garments, with a beautiful halo effect. It can be knitted on thick needles (5 mm/US 8 and up).
We use acid dyes, which are gentle for the environment and provide vibrant and very durable colors.
🐐 73% kid mohair/22% wool/5% nylon
🥢 6 mm (US 10)
👕 14 m/10 cm (4")
🧶 100 g = 180 m (197 yds)
Please note that the actual product color may vary from the visual representation on this website. There may also be variations in different batches. It is therefore recommended to buy enough yarn for your project in one order.
Mohair is not recommended for children under 1 year, because the child can get the tiny fibers in the mouth/throat.
Hand-dyed yarn, as the name suggests, is a craft, and there will be differences between skeins. This means that it is not necessarily just a matter of unraveling the yarn and starting to knit. Now, we're not going to make it more complicated than it needs to be, but there are a few things that might be good to know before you get started.
We recommend that you knit every other round from different skeins to camouflage any color differences. The more colorvariety in the yarn, the more important is this. Kimmie Munkholm shows this nicely when knitting circular in this video, and when you knit back and forth in this video.
If you don't want to knit every other round from different skeins (this is done at your own risk 😉), it is recommended to do this a few rounds when changing yarn. This applies regardless of the color of the yarn.
We want you to get the best possible result on the knitwear you spend a lot of time and resources on. 🥰
Please note that the yarn may contain excess colour. Therefore, wash separately the first time.
All knitted garments should be stored flat.
