We love working with mohair

We’ve been talking a lot about muti-strand knitting.  Our passion for this technique was sparked at the beginning of the summer when Churchmouse Yarns and Teas published their Modern Wrapper182979_10151617744728701_227586329_nYou may remember that we swatched up several color variations combining a single strand of Rowan Fine Tweed with one of Rowan Kidsilk Haze.  The resulting fabric knit up on a US 9  or 10 needle is light as a feather, very soft, and beautifully tweedy.  Just the thing to throw over your shoulders as the temperatures are starting to drop. modern wrapper tableWe now have a couple of finished samples in the shop for you to see.  I want to encourage you to try them on as they are particularly flattering for all body types.  A bit of a surprise, but you’ll agree once we get one on your shoulders.We have created several luscious colorways for fall that range in price between $181 and $199 depending on the yarns selected.  We hope that you can stop by soon to check these beauties out, as they require a bit of stitching before they are complete.We hope that they will take a starring role in your fall wardrobe this year.
