What we found is a new yarn for us, from a company called Fyberspates.
The yarn is Faery Wings and is made up of 69% mulberry silk/ 22% mohair/ 9% polymide with 191 yards (175m) per 50g skein.
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.
This blend of fibres means the yarn takes the semi solid and variegated hand dyed shades with a unique depth and intensity.
Despite the textured appearance of Faery Wings in the hank, the yarn knits up into a smooth and even fabric with luxurious drape and a soft halo.
We have two colorways for you to choose between:
1. Peony is a blend of violet, rose, fuchsia, and pink. Beautiful.
2. Lagoon is a cool mix of sea green and sea blue. Delicious.
Just a thought --- you might like us to include some 6/0 beads, chosen to look good with the yarn you choose so you can dive right into whichever pattern you decide to knit these beauties in.
So if you decide that yes, you'd like beads, we added an option via the drop-down menu above to get 20g of size 6/0 beads. That will give you about 240 beads.
And if you have a preference color-wise, tell me. Otherwise I will choose for you.
