'Red sky at night; shepherds' delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherds' warning.'

An old English saying my Mother still chimes with every sunset that turns the sky erubescent pink and creamy sunshine yellow on a summer evening. Every time I hear the phrase, all I need do is close my eyes and the vivid beauty of those colours is still with me.


Kid Silk Fluph is a glorious lace weight blend of 72% Superkid Mohair, 28% Mulberry Silk. Two strands of Mulberry silk hold the mohair fibres in place and is such a versatile base. Superkid mohair is fibre from the first shearing of mohair goats and the finest fibres the goats will ever produce, making them incredibly soft.

Each 50g skein has a huge 420m. Used alone, it will produce a gossamer-like fabric - when held together with another yarn, it adds a beautiful soft halo to any project.


All of my yarn is prepared and stored in a smoke and pet free environment.

Superwash wool can be machine washed on a delicates cycle at 30⁰c, but I would recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. Do not machine wash non-superwash wool. I recommend hand washing in cool water with very little agitation and a gentle soap. Lay flat to dry.

I have done my best to accurately represent the true colour of the skeins with my pictures, but due to differences in screen settings, what you see may not be exactly the same shade as the pictures I’ve taken.

As with all hand dyed yarn, no two skeins will ever be identical. However, where possible I will send skeins from the same dye lot together. A little bit of colour run may happen in the first few washes, but this will be minimal.
