Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is a luxurious blend of the finest kid mohair and mulberry silk. Incredibly soft to touch with the unmistakable mohair halo, Soft Silk Mohair is perfect to use held with another yarn or simply by itself to create light-as-a-feather garments and accessories. Comes in a stunning selection of elegant and carefully curated range of colours.
The mohair fibre used by Knitting for Olive comes from goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally. Fibre is traceable back to the individual farms so the farm, farmers, and sheep who made the wool are directly known.
The mohair used is certified sustainable and RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with high respect for animal wellbeing, and with social responsibility. The spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals.
The silk in Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the caterpillars are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process, as they are in conventional silk production.
The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified
We advise that mohair is not particularly suitable for children 1 year old and under, since the lightweight mohair fibres, while perfectly safe, can cause mild irritation if babies get them in their mouths.
