We love this beautiful Silk/Mohair blend from our friends at Lana Grossa. It's soft, soft, soft, and available in a variety of different color ways, including striping, degrade, and "Lusso", which comes with a thread of nylon to add that touch of sparkle. Silkhair is labeled as a DK, but it can knit down with small needles, or use a big needle and let it loft. There are so many ways to use this yarn, we'd love to help you use it in your project! Silkhair, depending on the specific type, is Silk and Mohair. 5.5 sts = 1" on a US 7 (But again, it works to a wide variety of stitch gauges) Hand Wash, lay flat.
