Pirouette
Kid Mohair, Bamboo, Nylon
Pirouette is a delicate mohair and bamboo blend, available in twenty-five distinct colors. At 246 yards per ball, this is an incredibly beautiful and affordable alternative to mohair-silk blends. The gauge is versatile, making it just as airy and beautiful on a US3 or a US8.

Garments knit in Pirouette make great use of this versatility, featuring pieces can be knit with one, two or even three strands held together for dramatically different looks.
