Piper is our pretty little southern bird. We sourced the softest super fine kid mohair we could find and blended it with super fine merino to make a lighter-than-air, almost lace weight single-ply yarn. Piper has a pretty halo and a subtle sheen, thanks to the long, silky fibers of the mohair. Knit it on a larger needle if you want. It fills in nicely. Great in sweaters, hats, and, of course, shawls.
Sourcing Texas mohair has come with challenges, and as we describe on our blog, in order to keep this special yarn to our standards, we had to look outside the US for production.

In the same fiber family as our laceweight Piper, Crane was developed with the idea of creating a luxe, single ply of superfine merino/superkid mohair blend in a versatile worsted weight. Paired with an arresting palette to suit its softness of character and silkiness of the resulting fabric’s hand, Crane is irresistibly soft, warm, and seems to glow from within.
