Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is a lace weight yarn. It is a luxurious blend of the finest Kid Mohair and Mulberry silk. It comes from angora goats which are bred in South Africa and the yarn is also produced locally. The wool can be traced back to the farm it comes from. In this way, they know exactly which farm, farmers, and sheep made the wool.
This Soft Silk Mohair is certified sustainable and is produced to RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with highest respect for the animal's wellbeing, and with social responsibility in mind. The spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns which are free from harmful chemicals.
The Silk in this Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they commonly are in conventional silk production.
The yarn is STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified.
