A beautiful and unusual silk and mohair yarn, Faery Wings is a combination of a single ply of shiny silk wrapped with a strand of fluffy mohair and nylon to create a yarn with a wonderful handle and luxurious drape. This blend of Mulberry Silk, Mohair, and Polyamide means the yarn takes the semi-solid and variegated hand-dyed shades with a unique depth and intensity.
Despite the textured appearance of Faery Wings in the hank, the yarn knits up into a smooth and even fabric with a luxurious drape and a soft halo, as shown in the swatch on the right.
