Our love affair with modern day Silk-Mohairs continues with this beautiful and unusual and super lustrous silk and mohair yarn.
Faery Wings is a combination of a single ply of shiny silk wrapped with a strand of fluffy mohair and nylon to create a yarn with a wonderful handle and luxurious drape. There's nothing else quite like it.
We can't keep our eyes off the intense, vibrant colours - this yarn is such a joy to use!
Despite the textured appearance of Faery Wings in the hank, the yarn knits up into a smooth and even fabric with luxurious drape and a soft halo.

Fyberspates is a yarn company who focus on texture and colour. We love strong vibrant hues contrasted with soft metallic greys.
We believe that texture is important to show off colour and our hand dyes are made specifically not to distract from the fabrics created with our yarns.
We hope you enjoy knitting our yarns, our aim is to bring a touch of the Indie to our commercial ranges, since that's where we started and where we like to be, always creating something fun and different.
