Kremke Soul Wool – Silky Kid
If you are looking for a mohair and silk yarn, in bright and happy colours, you will certainly find something to your liking in Kremke Soul Wool’s Silky Kid palette!
Indeed, the colour palette that has been developped for this yarn is rather large. And it offers colours that are unusual for this type of yarn, unless you go to an independant dyer. Yearning for a beautiful granny smith green, a bright purple or an electric blue? They are all here!
And as usual with this brand, with an outstanding quality yarn. Its finesse makes it a real treat to knit. And can we talk about its softness? A pleasure to wear!
This yarn is just perfect for any kind of project, whether you are in the mood for a fluffy shawl or a cuddly sweater. Very polyvalent, you can knit it on its own, with one or several strands, whether in the same colour or with different ones to achieve a marled* effect, or you can pair it with something else altogether. For example, you can match it with this Baby Alpaca, for a unique softness. This yarn will give an aerial touch and a lot of lightness to your projects.

Or why not a shawl, like the Agrumes designed by Christelle Nihoul (on Ravelry), with its stripes of different yarn textures?
And of course, you can still take a look at the Ravelry page of this yarn to find even more ideas!
*”Marled” is a colour effect achieved by spinning or knitting together highly contrasted yarns. The most striking effect is obtained by mixing black and white, but you can have beautiful results with any colours you like. Blue and green, or pink and orange go very well together for example!
