Combined with other yarn, mohair changes the colors, creates beautiful motifs, adds softness, and lowers the fabric density. Explore the combinations and learn Molly’s tips for tinking, frogging, and fixing mistakes in mohair.

Great class

Loved all the info about various ways to use mohair. The sampler kit was so helpful. It let you experiment with different colors of mohair and how it interacted with different weights, colors, and types of other yarns.
