Mohair is making a huge come back. The Copenhagen brand Ganni is huge the moment for being a reasonable (higher priced brand) and for very cool designs. They have also spent the last few seasons with a mohair jumper as one of their strong pieces in their collection - Summer and Winter. And this is because mohair can be light and perfect for spring but also retain huge amounts of warmth and there fore great for winter. Ideal jumper yarn!
How to care for Mohair…
Mohair does not always need to be dry cleaned, it will happily be washed by hand and with stand a gentle a spin. I advise a hand wash or wool detergent.
Do not tumble dry.
A quick top tip to stop mohair jumpers shedding hair - Pop said jumper into a plastic bag and place into a freezer for a couple of hours or even over night. The cold will freeze the wool fibres and ensure that the garment stops losing its pilosity. This will also reduce electric static which attracts your body hairs and other materials you are wearing.
