Texas blends mohair and wool into a firm yarn with surprising sheen. The mohair is not brushed, so the surface of the yarn is smooth rather than fuzzy. The mohair provides luster while the wool contributes resilience. Texas is an undyed yarn and would be great in a classic gansey, where the stitch patterns would stand out due to the smooth, firm surface. It would also make a great warm blanket.
Texas can be dyed using Washfast dyes.
This yarn comes in a reeled hank, which must be wound into a ball before use. We are happy to wind the yarn for you at no charge, but this does make the yarn non-returnable. If you would like your skeins wound, please request it in the "Shipping Instructions" box during the checkout process. If you are going to dye the yarn, it is best left on the hank.
