Pattern description from One Skein: “I love the combination of silk and mohair in this feathery light yarn, and I use it so often, by itself or in combination with other yarns, that my friends are beginning to tease me. Despite their ‘Not agains!’ I still find the yarn ideal for many projects, especially one worked in plain stockinette stitch. Wear the sleeves with your favorite outfit - jeans and a tank top or a little black dress - when you want to take the chill off your arms.”
