Moonlight Mohair

This Lion Brand yarn made in Italy is 57% acrylic, 28% mohair, 9% cotton, and 6% polyester metallic. It says machine washable, but I wouldn’t even entertain the thought. This is a definite handwash and air dry. Once again the picture doesn’t truly capture the depth and character of this yarn. It shimmers but in a subtle way. I used the purple mountains color and one ball makes a nice fashion drape around the neck and hanging on each side, no overlapping and not too long. I prefer knitting for this yarn just because of the way it looks. A single or double seed stitch gives the metallic threads great surface area for light reflection. Poetic.
