Aloft Super Kid Mohair Yarn

$6.99 25g / ball


Luxuriously soft, light and airy, Aloft is a dreamy blend of 75% mohair and 25% silk that you will want to knit with again and again. The silk adds a radiant core that shimmers and shines through the soft halo of the mohair, while adding a beautiful drape and texture to any shawl, stole or scarf. Why not try holding Aloft doubled for a denser fabric, making it the perfect choice for a light-weight and surprisingly warm cardigan or wrap. Whether you use this yarn on its own or as an accent, you will find Aloft to be a versatile yarn perfectly suited for any project, big or small.

Aloft is so gorgeous.  I've been having such a hard time putting it down that I am a bit over a third of the way through knitting a big stole that I only started yesterday.  I know that the recipient will love it; the yarn is so soft and it has the most beautiful halo.  I would definitely recommend this yarn!

Love this yarn! I bought the color "celestial" and am knitting a cowl holding two strands together on a size 9 needle. It is very rich looking and I am very pleased. Actually back on the site to look at other colors. Also, the color is matched to the capra yarn I also bought to knit a pair of fingerless gloves to match!!!

Wonderful yarn, soft and easy to work with. However, in dark colors the undyed silk core really shows. I'm using green and silver in a brioche shawl, and the pattern gets a little lost.

I did a beautiful cowl using two strands of this yarn. It turned out so wonderful and I am thrilled with the quality for the price.

I agree with Ginny. This is a beautiful yarn with all the color saturation and delicious softness one would find at twice the price and the same yardage. A real winner.

I love this yarn. Works just like the more expensive morhair and silk blends and the colors are so vibrant.
