We are huge fans of this yarn. Think Shibui Silk Cloud, only hand-painted and exquisite!
Artyarns Silk Mohair yarn is the highest quality Silk-Mohair blend we've ever found. 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.
And with a generous 285m per 25g skein, you can create almost weightless garments and accessories from this ultra-soft yarn. Or hold it together with another yarn to give it the ultimate upgrade, both in softness and colour!
