Prima Ballerina 🩰
Hand-dyed yarn in wonderfully soft mohair/silk in the color"Prima Ballerina".
The softness of the mohair depends first and foremost on the quality of the fibers. Superkid mohair comes from the first sort, and is the softest and thinnest fibers you get from the mohair goat. The second sort is often what is called kid mohair, is also soft, but not as soft as superkid mohair. It can be used against the skin, and gives incredibly light and airy garments. The silk gives the yarn a beautiful exclusive pearlescent sheen, and the mohair's ability to keep warm is about twice that of wool.
The yarn is thin, so it fits very well as a companion thread to many knitting designs. This yarn is very suitable for ego knitting and children's knitting.
🐐 75% superkid mohair / 25% mulberry silk
🥢 3-5 mm | 👕 18-24 st / 10 cm | 🧶 50 g = 420 m
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 of age, 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.
