Double down on the joy with Artyarns Double Mohair Ombré! This incredible new yarn consists of two threads of the highest quality Silk-Mohair blend we've ever found, plied together and then hand-painted by artisans with a totally unique technique resulting in long transitions between colours.
Think of it as a cross between gradient dyed yarn and variegated. It's completely new and can totally transform your knits!
Most of our colourways are exclusive to Tribe. We've put a lot of thought into them and they are stunning. They really glow, and working with them is blissful!
We would classify the yarn as fingering weight although it has a whopping 566m per 90g, and our new Make Mine A Double Sweater is knit on 6mm needles! Which just goes to show its versatility. It would be great on such a huge range of needles (like 2.75mm - 8mm!).
Gorgeous, soft halo from the top-tier mohair, and fabulous lustre and shine from the high silk content (40% as compared to 28-30% in other brands of silk-mohair). This stuff isn't like your run-of-the-mill silk-mo.
Absolutely no scratchiness, no plastic/acrylic. This yarn has been hand-painted by artisans, not machine dyed, so each skein has depth and interest.

Ingredients: 60% Fine Kid Mohair, 40% Mulberry Silk
