Pure white Shetland wool blended 50/50 at the woolen mill with pure white Mohair. This is my favorite blend to spin. You get the softness of both wool and mohair, plus the strength and scheen of the mohair. When people knit socks they enhance the strength of the toes and heels with nylon yarn. I prefer to spin this blend very fine. Then add it with the yarn I'm making the socks with. This makes those heels and toes long wearing. The yarn or roving takes dye very well. But try knitting it white with your colored yarn for an interesting effect in your garments. Sold in 8 ozs. balls.
