Introducing Silky Kid
By Kremke Soul Wool
Silky Kid by Kremke Soul Wool brings together the very best of silk and mohair to create a soft and luxurious yarn.
The delicate fibres are carefully milled, the mohair being gently spun into a core of silk to produce a fine halo when the yarn undergoes texturing with a brushed finish.
Worked on its own, Silky Kid creates a lush drapey fabric that resists creasing and wrinkles. When stranded with other yarns the mohair halo will add luxe and sophistication.
Best suited to hand-knit and woven fabrics, Silky Kid is for those timeless pieces with enduring aesthetic.
