Toria

This 80% kid mohair/20% nylon laceweight yarn can be machine washed!

It knits up Monet-ishly and features 229 yds/25 gm ball. The recommended gauge is anywhere from 4.5 sts/inch to 6.5 sts/inch and, like most laceweight mohairs, can be knit on a wide range of needles (US 3 - US8 according to this label).

The simple lace cardi shown below took just 3 sks....and fits a 42" chest.

If you are looking for a bit of variation in a laceweight mohair but want more tonal options, check out the new Kid Gloss (this is a silk-kid mohair blend so is even softer than Toria, but a bit more expensive)

And for another lace weight mohair option, which like Kid Gloss is kid mohair and silk, but in solids check out Debbie Bliss's Angel

Price: $6.50/sk
