This gorgeous blend of mohair and wool offers a rich range of colors with a beautiful halo that creates soft, wonderfully textured garments. Mix and match its cool and warm colors, or combine them with other yarns in our shop - this woolen-spun yarn has a flexible gauge that pairs well with any other worsted weight yarn.
Best of all, this yarn offers the warmth and texture of mohair, with a traceability not found in commercial mohair products. Our friends at Green Mountain Spinnery source its wool and yearling mohair from farms across the US.

About who makes it: We love everything about local-to-us Green Mountain Spinnery. They spin some pretty famous yarns; if you've ever crochet or knit with Julie Asselin, Tidal Yarns, Catskill Merino, Sawkill Farm, or Wing and a Prayer Farm, you've experienced the crafts(wo)manship of the Spinnery.
Based in Vermont, this worker-owned cooperative focuses on supporting regional farming and producing natural fibers responsibly; they are one of the only mills in the US that is certified to produce organic fiber. We can spot a Green Mountain-spun skein at any sheep and wool festival for its consistent spin and perfect twist, and we're so happy to introduce you to one of our favorite companies in the New England fiber shed. Our local farms could not do what they do without the partnership of the Spinnery.
