The softer and rarer Superkid mohair produces the softest, most luxurious mohair/silk yarn. Two strands of mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place to add radiance and strength. Gentle enough for next to skin wear. Superkid mohair is from the first shearing and these are the softest and finest fibres the mohair goats will ever produce. The second shearing is usually called kid mohair and is still of fine quality, but is not as soft as superkid mohair. This is a super light and airy yarn and can be worked at many different gauges. It produces gossamer-like items when large needles or hooks are used and soft, fluffy items at tigher gauges. It can also be carried with another yarn to add a delicate haze and to produce a surprisingly warm fabric. Superkid mohair has a natural pearly lustre.
It would pair perfectly with Natural Multi-Coloured Donegal NEP as pictured above.
Hand wash is recommended and dry flat. Excessive exposure to sun may fade the colour.
