Hobbii Kid Silk is very high quality, wonderful and luxurious yarn. It is made from 70% kid mohair and 30% silk, and is manufactured in Italy especially for Hobbii in a plethora of remarkably beautiful colourways. 

There are many reasons why mohair has resurfaced and become super trendy. It is soft and light, and gives your creations a luxurious feel. Furthermore, a few balls will get you a long way, because the meterage is an impressive 195 metres per 25 grams. Consequently, the end result is light as a feather which makes Kid Silk very suitable for projects such as shawls and airy tops made with either one or two strands.

If you want to add extra luxury and oomph to your pullovers or jumpers or cardigans, you can easily join a thread of Kid Silk with a thread of wool. There are countless possibilities for making beautiful combinations, like the combination with our Baby Merino. This method will allow you to create the most amazing rich colour nuances; two shades that are far apart will give you a deeply marled, high contrast effect, whereas two shades that are close together will produce a harmonious and more calm effect.

I've used mohair yarns for a few projects in the past and I never super loved working with it/the feel of it until now. This yarn is soooo soft and dreamy, and is so easy to use! I've only gotten as far as the collar of the sweater but I'm already so excited for this project because of how cozy the kid silk makes it. It's definitely a warm yarn, I actually have to take breaks to knit because my fingers get a little too warm (It's also nearing a texas summer so my own fault for choosing a warm fuzzy project in this weather :p) but picking this up makes me squee with joy, and I'll definitely be ordering more for all my mohair needs!

Soft, beautiful, delicate. I love this yarn. I am using it along with Dream Colour Wool to make a pair of mittens for a good friend and it is creating an amazing, soft halo that just brings a magical quality to the mittens. It is very delicate and if you are not careful, there will be lots of frogging. Move slowly and it's all golden. I seriously love the added softness that this adds.

I have never knitted with mohair before trying this out and I’m using it with another yarn to knit a newborn set. The yarn is very soft and gives a beautiful halo effect using only one strand with the other yarn. I love the colour range and am looking to purchase more soon; i highly recommend!

This is a fantastic substitute for the other "name brand" kid silk. I held this double with a lace weight yarn that was in my stash for many years and made a gorgeous sweater!
