Krea Deluxe's Deluxe Silk Mohair is a wonderfully soft, fluffy and and light yarn produced with RMS-certified mohair, silk and baby alpaca. It's fantastic for holding it double with their Organic Wool 1, or on its own (perhaps double-stranded?) for a super light-weight shawl!
• Created by sisters Heidi and Pia Johannesen out of the desire for and vision of founding a company that exclusively produces quality yarn and design according to organic and sustainable values.
• The entire production process takes place in Italy and is focused on minimizing its ecological impact, maximizing animal welfare and implementing sustainability in every step. All mohair used in this yarn stems from Africa and is RMS certified.
• Yarn origin: Italy
We're always excited to talk yarn and knitting and answer any questions you might have!
