We love the generous yardage and feel of our silk and mohair yarn, Aerial. Made with 65% super kid mohair and 35% silk, this yarn is the best of both fibers with its softness and shine.
"Super kid" refers to the finest quality of mohair, which is obtained from the first shearing of a young goat. The silk used in Aerial is filament silk, also called "reeled silk," which is a very strong type of silk fiber with a beautiful shine. With18 gorgeous colors, it's truly a top of the line luxury packed in a 25g ball.
Whether you use it single stranded in shawls and scarves or use multiple strands held together to make a really dynamic pullover, each piece is delightfully light and buttery soft to the touch. It's a yarn we think you'll try sneaking into everything you make to level up the softness.
This Week's Free Pattern
Our latest free pattern is a delicate lace scarf made with 2 balls of Aerial. It's a perfect kiss of warmth to carry with you on some of those unpredictable spring days.

We're loving the change of temps here in New England but know that mornings are still cold which is why we are still reaching for many of our handknits. Aerial has certainly become one of my favorite yarns to work with. I am working on my own Rooibos using Aerial in Tea Rose held with Ultra Wool Handpaint in Pink Lemonade. The Tea Rose adds that subtle pink tone to the whole sweater.
