Kidsilk Breeze Scarf

Mohair is such a lovely fiber, but sometimes it’s tough to think up a good project for it – something that shows off its loft and halo, without being too heavy or smothering. Side note, my love for mohair once persuaded me to buy not one, but two tight-fitting mohair turtlenecked sweaters. They’re beautiful, but so hot they’re virtually unwearable.

Kidsilk is a beautiful blend – the warmth and loft of mohair added to the breathability and sheen of silk. The two fibers together in a scarf are a dream. We’ve written up the pattern of one of our most popular shop models – a scarf knit diagonally on the bias, worked in 3 (or more!) colors of Kidsilk (would also be great in Shibui Cloud).
