2-Ply Mohair Silk Yarn

Tilia is a luxurious yarn, spun from 70% kid mohair and 30% mulberry silk. Technically, Tilia is a thin worsted-spun, brushed yarn. Mohair has all the good properties we know from wool. It is warm, beautiful and can absorb moisture, making it comfortable to wear. Compared to wool, the mohair fibers are shiny and slightly stronger. Silk has been one of the most sought-after textile fibers for millennia. It is glossy, beautiful, strong and incredibly comfortable to wear. The combination of silk and a cloud of mohair is one of the tastiest and most luxurious yarns you could wish to knit with.

Mohair comes from the Angora goat. The Angora goat originates from the area around Ankara in Turkey, hence the name. The word mohair has Arabic roots, and the angora goat is also sometimes referred to as a mohair goat. We spin Tilia from mohair from farms in South Africa.

Mulberry silk is the best silk available. It is glossy and the fibers are uniform and stronger than other silk fibers. Mulberry silk has been produced for millennia in China and is an important export commodity. In ancient times, China was the only country that produced silk.

You can of course knit with Tilia alone, but we also recommend knitting it together with one of our other qualities. Saga, Alva and Vilja, for example, are fantastic to knit or crochet with Tilia.
