  • Special Introductory Price to celebrate our new pattern!

    This warm, airy, supersoft sweater can be knit with just one skein of stunning Double Mohair Ombré yarn!

    It's a simple top-down, in-the-round knit with a slouchy funnel neck, deep yoke and boxy, comfy body. You can yank it down for less yarn in the “funnel”, or pull it up for less baggy armpits and more lovely mohair round your neck.

    We have designed some gorgeous colourways, including our EXCLUSIVE Tribe colourway, which all result in a funky-cool, watercolour painting result - and they are so much fun to knit!! Every sweater will be slightly different since every skein is individually hand-painted.

    Ethereal, magical, super light but super warm too, and great for layering!

    Your Kit includes:
    • 1 (2, 2, 3) skein(s) of yarn for size S (M, L, XL)
    • Exclusive Pdf pattern by Milli Abrams

    You will also need:
    • 5.5mm and 6mm circular needles (or size needed to achieve gauge)
    • 1 x Stitch Marker
    • Darning Needle for ends
    • 2 x stitch holders or spare yarn

    Sizes – to fit above-bust measurement:

    Small 28 – 34” (for final body width of 47")
    Medium 36 – 42” (for final body width of 53")
    Large 44 – 50” (for final body width of 61")
    X-Large 52 – 62” (for final body width of 69 ½”)

    (Shown in size Small, Colourway: "Time to Bin the Salmon, Dear")

    Artyarns Double Mohair Ombré yarn consists of two threads of the highest quality Silk-Mohair blend we've ever found, plied together and then hand-painted by artisans.

    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:
    1 (2, 2, 3) Skeins of Mohair Ombré (60% Fine Kid Mohair, 40% Mulberry Silk)
    PDF (emailed) pattern

    Length:
    566m (620yd)

    Weight:

    Gauge:
