First clip "red" Kid mohair 50% blended with 25 % 19 micron pale moorit merino, baby suri alpaca15%, and red eri silk 10%. Red eri is a naturally colored silk from India, a shade that is not red but coppery due to vegetation eaten by the silk worms. It is harvested following exit of the animal from the cocoon.
It drafts very smoothly. The roving is next-to-skin soft, really buttery.
Merino is from Genopallette. Unfortunately, silk prices and kid mohair prices have risen quite a bit, so we are unable to offer this at a lower price, but a little should go a long way spun at fingering or laceweight. This listing is for 1 ounce.
If you like the halo of mohair, this is a fabulous roving for you. I usually do not brush my mohair yarns before knitting or weaving. They will halo naturally over time or can be brushed after construction. It will have superior drape but sufficient memory from the merino to hold its shape well in knitted projects.
