Merino / Angora yarn

This is a super soft light fingering weight yarn that is composed of 65% merino wool and 35% angora rabbit fiber. This angora merino yarn is a four-ply that is both warm and soft. Yet it is light in weight making it a perfect choice for socks, or any next to skin garment that you don't want to be too bulky, yet want the warmth and comfort of wool. It is not scratchy--but rather, is velvety soft. Each skein yields approximately 125 yards, and weighs about a half of an ounce. Many in stock. Yarn comes in camel brown and black.

Brunette Brown mohair blythe reborn berenguer doll hair

Here is some beautiful, soft mohair that comes from a kid angora goat. It has been shampooed, rinsed, dyed to lovely, modulated shades of brunette. It has been combed and conditioned. This mohair doll hair reminds me of real human hair because it has highlights and lowlights--just like human hair. It is about nine inches long, so it is really easy to work with. You can either make a really good wig for your doll, or else use it for rooting. This mohair has been used by doll hair artists who make reborn dolls, trolls, Blythe doll wigs, Berenguer doll hair rooting, and other kinds of doll wigs. Use this brunette brown mohair doll hair for all of your doll hair needs. Whenever you need a realistic brunette doll hair, this is it!!

It is a four ply fingering weight yarn that has been hand-painted to undulating tones of teal, violet, butternut and cream. I call it "Arizona Evening."

wool mohair blend batts

I have been making some gorgeous batts on my Pat Green drum carder, using some fine soft wool from a merino cross lamb, and some lovely mohair. I have dyed the wool to shades of violet, moss green and blue--teal, and a cerulean. The mohair is dyed grape. I have been swirling in spritzes of mohair to the wool onto the drum carder and am quite pleased with the results. I call these batts "Mediterranean Summer"

I am offering more cone yarns for sale. These cones each weigh a little over a pound. The yarn is a thin polyester lace-weight, like a thick sewing or quilting thread.

It adds strength and color to your wools. You can also ply several of these together for a delightful novelty yarn. These cones are big, and will last you a very long time. I have the following colors:

Rayon lightweight cone yarn

These cones are 100 percent rayon. I have three available. They weight approximately 9 ounces each. The color is a very pleasing, translucent antique pink. They work especially well for weaving projects, but I use them also for plying with my wools and any singles that need to be strengthened or livened up a little. It's a lace weight yarn. I think it is lighter than my browser indicates. I call it "antique rose" --it is a shiny, but muted pink, like a pale pink rose petal, or some of the antique pinks you see in quilts. A lovely yarn.
