Mohair + Wool – ONION
Ball of fluff in view! If you are craving a big cuddly sweater, or in fact anything perfect for cocooning, you will be tempted by Onion’s Mohair + Wool…
Indeed, this yarn, made of half mohair and half wool, can be knitted with 4 or 5 mm needles. Your projects will knit up soooo quickly: instant gratification feeling guaranteed! You can even try bigger needles sizes, for an off gauge effect, for example in a light and fluffly shawl with a pretty lace pattern? Actually, this yarn, spun in Italy, has a particular structure. It gives it a lot of volume, that makes an aerial effect. A real cloud of softness to cuddle in!
And with its pretty colour palette, you will definitely find something to suit your winter cocooning mood.
