Fonty – Moustache
Craving to splurge on a little knitting luxury, but without putting your bank account in the red? Fonty’s Moustache, with its dreamy composition and accessible price, might well be the next yarn to jump on your needles!
Indeed, with this new yarn, Fonty offers us a delicious blend of fiber. The brand chose to mix an extra-fine merino to super-kid mohair (the finest quality of mohair), and to add a bit more luxury to this with just a touch of silk to bring some sheen and resistance to the whole. It has resulted in a very soft yarn, light-weight, that will bloom when washed… We almost feel the urge to fill a bathtub with it and dive in it!
Plus, Fonty has developped a beautiful colour palette for this yarn. Complete, it ranges from basic colours to warm ones, as well as soft pastel tones. Something for everyone, and a ball for each project you might want to cast on.
Actually, this yarn will really be a good choice for almost any project. Garment or accessory, for adult or children, on its own or combined with a mohair lace yarn… Just let your creativity flow!

If you are curious to learn more about this brand, its values and the way their yarn is manufactured, you can go and take a look at their Instagram. They regularly post informative contents concerning the way they choose and work their fibres (in French mainly, but there might be an automatic translation, or you can use any online translator and still get a good idea of things).
And if this type of yarn appeals to you, but your skin is definitely against any contact with mohair fibre, take a look at Gepard Garn’s Wild & Soft… You might find your next yarn craving there! 😉
