The soft and delicate Silk Mohair yarn from Isager is one of our favorite yarns at Önling. We love to combine Silk Mohair with other types of yarn, as this gives a soft and cozy look and feel to your knitting. We have for instance used Silk Mohair in combination with Krea DeLuxe organic cotton in the Edel sweater for a light summer knit, or in combination with Alpaca 1 for the Damask sweater – a luxurious and airy light yet warm sweater.
Silk Mohair can also be knitted on its own, and it is particularly suitable for shawls such as the very popular Cloud shawl, which is simply a dream to wear. We have also knitted Silk Mohair on its own for the super light Babette cardigan.
Origin of the yarn:
The Silk Mohair yarn is spun and dyed in Italy for the Danish yarn brand Isager. Isager is a respected brand among knitters in Denmark and worldwide, due to their high quality and luxurious yarn.
The company was founded by Åse Lund Jensen, who contributed greatly to the art of knitting with her yarns and knit designs. Today Isager is owned by Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga Isager, who continue to inspire knitters with their knitting books and designs.
Isager today produce around different 20 types of yarn, all of which are of high quality and lovely to work with. See more Isager Yarn here.
We recommend hand washing your Isager Silk Mohair yarn.
Wool does not require washing as often as other textiles, and it is therefore sustainable in daily use as it saves resources from washing. If your wool clothes need “freshing up” hanging it outside will often be sufficient.
