Mohair tailspun yarn on my wonderful Majacraft Aura wheel
These Mohair locks are bound for a project that I have in mind for me. The inspiration for the colour way was from a silk and stainless steel fine yarn that I found from wonderful shop here in Richmond Melbourne, Dairing. Teresa, the owner, had knitted the most wonderful fine shrugs and tops from this yarn and it scrunched up and kept it's creased texture because of the stainless steel in the yarn - amazing! I bought several bobbins off her and so the project started. I now have a single spun in silk, wool and mohair, with the silk and stainless steel yarn as a wrap and now the Mohair tail spun yarn to go with it. Now with the three yarns I must think about a project with me in mind. Something will come to me, the creative process is interesting, but can't be rushed.
