Billy the Kid

 
 

Billy the Kid

I love mohair. I know that I am in the minority on mohair but I won't be once everyone gets their hands on our Billy the Kid. Take a high grade kid mohair from Texas, add in a finer wool with a slightly shorter staple length and what you get is a whole lot of sheen, some strength from the longer staple and enough loft from the finer wool to soften and lift. It's a pleasure to dye. Just absorbs and reflects like it's silks best friend. A great 2 ply  knitting and weaving yarn. Some of us might not want Billy the Kid right next to your skin but you are going to want it everywhere else. It likes to be knit firmly but looks really great in a loose application also.
