Mohair yarn is warm in winter but cool in summer due to its moisture wicking properties. Mohair is durable and naturally elastic; it takes dye well and is notable for its high lustre and sheen. With all these features, it is a popular yarn for garments and regularly used for scarves, shawls and cardigans.
We have a lovely selection of Mohair yarns, in all the latest colours from your favourite brands. Choose a yarn below to view a whole range of related products as well as ideas for patterns and designs that you could make.
Mohair Knitting Yarn
Made from the wool of Angora goats, Mohair wool is one of the oldest fibres to be used. Its durable nature and distinctive fluffy appearance means it’s a very popular type of knitting yarn.
You can make all sorts of projects using Mohair, including scarves, winter hats, sweaters and even soft furnishings. Some of the fluffier varieties are more challenging for those newer to knitting but you can always try our selection of easy knitting patterns.
