Named for long and wild tufts of grass, our Tussock collection is like tousled bundles of pure joy! Spun and dyed in Japan, Tussock is 60% super fine kid mohair and 40% silk, a beautiful blend for absorbing color and reflecting tones. Super fine kid mohair is the highest quality available, made from the first shearing of Angora goats, and it is oh-so soft, lending warmth and body to the yarn. The silk is mulberry silk noil, which comes from the short fibers of the finest silk and adds to Tussock’s luster, strength, and beauty. Tussock is technically a fine laceweight, but blooms so beautifully that we prefer to use it as a fingering weight on US 3-6 needles. Gorgeous as a single strand, this feather-light fiber also plays beautifully in pairs or even trios for your own invention of a watercolor-y marle, or try it alongside other yarns, for plumping up a companion or adding an unexpected touch. Be happy to know that the mohair in Tussock, which comes from South Africa, meets the Responsible Mohair Standard, a rigorous certification that recognizes a progressive approach to managing land and a commitment to treating goats ethically and responsibly. Tussock comes in 25 gorgeous colors, all inspired by nature’s fruitfulness: juicy, ripe berries and mimosas in bloom, lapping waters and zippy wildflowers.
