Tynn Silk Mohair – Sandnes Garn



“Softness, luxury and sensuality”… do you know any other yarn than a beautiful mohair and silk blend that can give you these feelings ? Sandnes Garn’s Tynn Silk Mohair is yet another proof of that ! Made of 57% mohair, 28% silk and 15% wool, this 100% natural yarn is particularly soft. It is also very polyvalent. You can knit only one strand of it, playing on the needle size, and create very different fabrics. And why not alternate your needle sizes inside the same project, to create different sections, like sheer stripes for example ? And you can also use two or even three strands of this yarn, maybe playing on the colors so that you can create solid or heathered stitches ! Just imagine how easy it will be to create a fade* this way ! Plus, if you want something smoother, you can knit it with another fiber entirely, like a merino yarn. That way, it will bring softness and lustre to your project. Plus you can play on the different shades of yarn this way too ! What you need to know about Sandnes Garn’s Tynn Silk Mohair :

For the last few months, mohair seemed to be one of the fiber the designers love. The Tynn Silk Mohair is for example well used by PetiteKnit, who creates simple and modern patterns. In fact, it works really well with her Sunday yarn ! But it will also be perfect to knit some of our own patterns that require a mohair and silk strand, such as Sur un Nuage, Sigrid or our cute Red Blush. And if you still need some more arguments to indulge, you can also check what others have done with it on Ravelry ! *Fading is a group of techniques used to create a color gradient, by fading one color into another. By changing one strand out of two or three on several rows, then another one… you will create a soft gradient without blocks of colors.
