Piper is our pretty little southern bird. We sourced the softest super fine kid mohair we could find from a Texas herd of angora goats and blended it with super fine Texas 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. 

As our new shipment arrives from South Africa onto our shelves, we'll be transitioning all of our shades of Piper to this new blend of 50% super kid mohair, 50% South African superfine merino. You may see both fiber contents on your yarn tags if you are ordering multiple colors of Piper during this time. This new Piper knits up perfectly with the original, allowing you to use them together to achieve identical gauge and fabric.
