Loop is the European flagship shop for all of quince & co yarns. We're so proud to stock their beautiful yarns.
Piper is almost lace weight: 303 yards to 50 grams. It knits up like a dream. Unlike brushed mohair, itfs fuzz is soft and subtle. You can still distinguish stitches. But the halo is there, a pretty haze that invites touch.
Quince have blended this lovely fiber with Texas merino, 50/50, to make little Piper.
Hand wash, lay flat to dry.
"Did you know that not that long ago Texas was mohair capital of the world? No longer, sadly.
We've gone from exporting 35,000,000 pounds of mohair fiber to barely a million. And along with the loss of our mohair goats, we,ve lost the ancillary industries: Processing, carding, spinning, dyeing. All those good things.
That said, some of the finest mohair in the world is still raised in Texas. And we're making a yarn out of it.
There are ten total, soft-but-not-wimpy shades that youfd find in vintage '40's prints, and all named after parts of Texas."
