From Canadian hand-dyer Megan Ingman comes this super-fuzzy, super-soft lace weight, all boasting Lichen and Lace’s saturated colorways. Marsh Mohair may be worked up alone, or double-stranded, or carried along with another yarn. The possibilities are endless! Bring a touch of softness to sweaters, shawls, and hats, being sure to look at 80/20 Sock (in Sockland!) for some perfect pairings. Hand wash, and lay flat to dry.
Remember that hand-dyed skeins are created individually, in small batches. If you are making a larger garment, please consider alternating skeins every two rows or rounds if you want an appearance of overall consistency in your finished object.
Please note that the photos here may show the colorways on a base other than Marsh Mohair.
