Silk Mohair is a luxury yarn as it is made from some of the finest natural fibers, mohair from the mohair goats and silk. Mohair is called a diamond fiber for its unique qualities and ability to keep you warm even though it's lighter than other types of wool.
Soft and lovely Silk Mohair is surely one of our favorite yarns here at Önling, and we are not alone - Silk Mohair is super popular right now with so many delicate sweaters knitted in Silk Mohair. Just to mention a few, we released the gorgeous Fluffy Fluffy sweater knitted in two strands of silk mohair with stripes and a touch of glitter, and Petiteknit released the simple and elegant sweaters Kumulus and Stockholm.
Silk Mohair is also a clear favorite when it comes to combining yarns. Silk Mohair adds softness and a cozy, fluffy look to other types of yarn, and can be combined with almost anything if you want to add luxury to your knitwear. See for instance our beautiful Aud cardigan, or the lovely Dora sweater.

Önling No 10 is produced by a family-owned spinning mill in Italy, that has been chosen because their strong values on sustainability matches our values at Önling very well. The company is for instance certified "Zero Emission", as their production chain is powered by renewable energy. Furthermore, all their raw materials are traceable all the way back to the origin. A very large part of their yarn is Oeko-Tex 100 and GOTS certified, which means that they live up to very strict rules and protocols for their entire supply chain from A-Z.
Mohair for Önling No 10 is sourced from South Africa and is 'Cruelty Free', produced with great care for animal welfare.
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
