In Edinburgh I found an inspiring small yarn shop with yarns made of a lot of different fibres. From Japan came this yarn fra Habu. It is very soft and yet strong – and is perfect for knitting shawls as thin as cobweb.
The yarn is made of 68% mohair and 32% nylon with a yardage of 285 in a shein for 14 gram.
I have knitted a delicate shawl, using a pattern ment for a much heavier yarn. It is interesting to see how two different types of yarn can give completly different results.
The pattern is called Esturia, is from Tincanknits and you can find it on Ravelry.
