I scored a bit of vintage mohair yarn from my mom yesterday. I’m hoping to use it for something a bit special, either for myself or my mom. Any thoughts?
There is about 3 1/2 skeins (around 240 yards) of a mohair/wool blend yarn in a creamy-beige color that just says “Super Brushed”. Is that the brand? Who knows. Each skein is 40 grams and 75 yards. As for the weight, I dunno. How do you measure WPI for fuzzy mohair? I’m gonna guess and say worsted-to-aran, since it seems to be about 8-9 WPI.
Then there’s about 1 1/3 skeins of 100% Italian mohair – by Sears Roebuck, no less! The full skein is 40 grams, but there’s no yardage listed. Looks to be the same weight as the other yarn, though, so I’d guess I have about 100 yards of it. Also in the photo is the cool antique sake set I also “pre-inherited”. It is carefully arranged for modesty, since it’s, um, a bit naughty. Beautiful artwork, though.
