Hebridean & Manx/Mohair

Hebridean & Manx/Mohair

The hardy Hebridean sheep have very dark brown, almost black, fleeces that gradually grey with age, so the wool is bitter chocolate in colour with occasional silvery hints. The fibre is of medium thickness, so suitable for outer wear or next to less sensitive skins. We've also used Manx to give these mohair blends a wonderful natural fawn shade. 

We've blended Hebridean and Manx fibre with some Mohair to soften it and add even more strength, creating a wonderfully hard wearing yarn. Mohair is often refered to as nature's nylon, so the 4-ply version of this yarn is particularly well suited to making socks. 

Select either the DK or the 4-ply to find the ranges of natural and dyed shades available.

Mohair picks up dyes beautifully so the dyed shades of our mohair blends have an amazing depth and lustre.
