Mohair is a silky textile produced from the hair of the angora goat. It is most often spun into a thread that can be woven, knitted, or crocheted depending upon the application. Mohair is durable, warm, insulating, and light. It also has moisture wicking properties that carry moisture away from the skin of the wearer. The hair of the angora goat has been used to produce textiles for centuries, and the term mohair entered English usage from the Arabic mukhayyar, referring to a type of woven head cloth.

Fuzzy Yarn

I haven't  made anything fuzzy in a long time. But this winter I bought  two balls of pink and one ball of blue kid mohair and decided to make something warm, soft and luxurious at the same time.

 

 

Two weeks of knitting and .... voila! - I got a velvety warm, heavenly soft and fashionably fuzzy skirt.
