This is a very soft, very sweet mohair and silk blend, making it a treasure to be used carefully and to add exquisite luxury to your knitting. I found working with it just a bit slippery, which took getting used to, but want to make a second version of the Mountain Stream scarf in this yarn, which is what Susan had in mind in designing it.. my first will be of silk/wool yarn from my stash. Mohair is much lighter per length than wool, and that furry stuff traps warmth around you, giving a featherweight scarf or shawl great wind-blocking capabilities. The colors in this Rowan version are vibrant and jewel-like, as you can see in my fingerless mitt below: the Kidsilk Haze is the lighter of the two purples.
Look at the halo on that yarn!
Although I would not want a whole sweater of this yarn, it would make a sexy little 1940s twinset or just the shortsleeved top.
