Yarn Profile: Berroco Mohair Classic
It may be my imagination, but this yarn has a slightly more brassy quality than the others.
Blocking / Washing
La Gran is slightly softer, but most people wouldn't even notice the difference. This means you can use any of the Classic Elite patterns for La Gran (such as those in Kristin Nicholas' Knitting Today's Classics and feel confident of success.
Ultimately it comes down to this: What color do you need, and how much do you want to spend on yarn? Both perform equally well, both have an extensive color selection, both skeins are within a few yards of one another, but La Gran is about $1 more per skein. It's a decision you'll have to make, but either way you're in good shape.
