I have been dreaming about mohair for awhile now. When on holiday in Milan, Italy, we came upon a fabulous outdoor market selling all manner of goods; invariably, I found the wool vendor! Once home, I set about making this traditionally constructed vest with classic lines, deep ribbing, and a big cuddly collar.
This Italian mohair blend by Rial by Biella’s Ravel, in the shade Marrone, has such a wondrous melange of colour and textures that a simple stitch shows it off best.
It is at once thick and cuddly, but light and fluffy. Feels like wearing a warm hug!
Note to self: plan another trip to Milan, and next time, bring an empty suitcase!
