Mimosa - (n) Silk Tree 'The tree of happiness'
Chinese Medicine: Mimosa harmonises the heart and calms the spirit
Jo of Spinning Yarns Weaving Tales was looking for an alternative to mohair for those with sensitive skin, something to give a halo and to be as soft as angora. When she came across this 100% silk brushed silk base, she knew it was the answer.
The name had to be Mimosa, the brushed silk reminded her of the soft touch of the tassel flowers of the silk tree... when she saw the symbolic meanings it was even more perfect.
There is an audible sigh when people see and touch it for the first time... it really does harmonise the soul and calm the spirit even for just that moment…
Mimosa Brushed Silk is a luxurious and soft alternative to brushed mohair. Not everyone can wear Kid Mohair next to their skin but it's almost the only way you want to wear Mimosa! Worked as a single strand it's like gossamer and has a magnificent softness similar to the feel of angora. Mimosa partners the Jasper Yak so perfectly they needed to be dyed together so as to be in complete harmony. Held together the brushed silk adds a subtle halo to the yak fibre.
Use Mimosa just as you would a mohair - hold it with another yarn to create a soft, cosy, fuzzy texture or use it on its own with large needles for ethereal shawls and scarves.
Sourced in China and milled in Italy, Mimosa is handdyed by Newcastle based Katrina, of Pirate Purl Yarns.
