Getting Started, Mohair Yarn Tutorial with Eunny Jang, from Knitting Daily TV Episode 603
Get to know knitting fibers! On episode 603 of Knitting Daily TV, we're diving into a range of natural fibers–from exotic fibers like mohair to common animal fibers, how to both treat them before spinning, and how to take care of them once you've made your project.
Join Eunny as she talks mohair, the hair of the angora goat, which is a unique yarn that is finer the younger the animal. Although beautiful, mohair can be difficult to knit with, so Eunny shares her tips for dealing with common mistakes: using a blunt knitting needle so the yarn is less likely to spilt, unknitting a project in mohair to fix mistakes as opposed to ripping stitches out, and a quick tip for brushing your projects to get the mohair to showcase itself for a designer look.
