Brushed mohair is one of my favorite winter yarns. It gives you the illusion of being enveloped in snow, though you're toasty warm and dry.

The Return of Mohair Madness

It's been over a year since we first explored the brushed mohair phenomenon, and we're due for an update. Over the next few weeks we explore new brushed mohairs and highlight some older ones that deserve attention.

This week I show you a colorful brushed mohair from Italy that you're likely to find in the markdown bin at your local yarn shop.
