Named for long and wild tufts of grass, our Tussock collection is like tousled bundles of pure joy! Spun and dyed in Japan, Tussock is 60% super fine kid mohair and 40% silk, a beautiful blend for absorbing color and reflecting tones. Choose from 35 gorgeous colors, all inspired by nature’s fruitfulness and fecundity: juicy, ripe berries and mimosas in bloom, lapping waters and zippy wildflowers. Tussock is technically a fine laceweight, but it has so much body and bloom that we prefer to use it as a fingering weight on US 3-6 needles. And gorgeous as a single strand, this feather-light fiber also plays beautifully in pairs or even trios for your own invention of a watercolor-y marle, or try it alongside other yarns, for plumping up a companion or for adding an unexpected touch. Be happy to know that the mohair in Tussock, which comes from South Africa, meets the Responsible Mohair Standard, a rigorous certification that recognizes a progressive approach to managing land and a commitment to treating goats ethically and responsibly.
