The amazing properties of mohair wool
Mohair wool is light, super soft, and strong. It has a beautiful shine and a lovely furry texture, is elastic, and regulates humidity. This wool cools you down in summer and keeps you comfortably warm in winter. On top of all this, mohair has antibacterial qualities and it’s completely biodegradable. It requires little care, as wool is self cleaning, so some fresh air is enough to keep enjoying your favourite item for years.
Choose your colour
The yarn is available in 7 colours. From left to right: Dark Blue, Light Grey, Taupe, Light Blue, Dark Grey, and Blossom (soft pink). It also comes in the goats’ natural color, off-white. All our dyed yarn is made following the GOTS standard. This means the use of chemicals is minimized. In order to recycle properly, we are switching to mono raw material: the colors light blue and blossom are already 100% mohair.
A 50 gram ball of Dutch Mohair contains about 100 meters. We recommend you to knit a sample and wash to check the number of rows and stitches. After washing you can put the cloth in the dryer on lukewarm for 10 minutes to get the best hairy result.
