So I am not a fan of mohair so I’m not sure I can give a fair review of this yarn. People keep saying that Rowan Kid Silk is the best so I will still reserve complete judgement on the entire fiber, but I just don’t like my sweater poking back when I wear it. I don’t mind knitting with the stuff, just wearing it bugs me even with a t-shirt on underneath.
This one also knitted true to the stated gauge on size 8s, but Mohair is a fickle friend in that it can mimic many gauges before you actually get too small or too big. It was a fairly easy knit without too much snagging for a mohair.
The feeling of the swatch on my face and neck aren’t bad but not soft enough for me.
Let me apologize for the swatch color and picture quality. I shot about 8 pics and that above was the best. The color hates me and would not let the camera focus. I got a special high powered light yesterday to help with photographing so we will see if things improve.
