A beautiful and unusual silk and mohair yarn, Faery Wings is a combination of a single ply of shiny silk wrapped with a strand of fluffy mohair and nylon to create a yarn with a wonderful handle and luxurious drape.
Made with 69% Mulberry Silk, 22% Mohair and 9% Polyamide, Faery Wings is put up in 50g hanks with 175m/191yds per hank and is available in 13 shades from semi solid to variegated. This blend of fibres means the yarn takes the semi solid and variegated hand dyed shades with a unique depth and intensity.
Labeled a Sport weight, this will knit to a DK weight as well.
