Following the success of our mohair blend with Jacob wool, we have introduced a parallel version with Manx. Adding mohair makes a softer yarn in both shade and handle but retains the character of the rare Manx. Available in DK and 4-ply.

The Manx Loagthan is a particularly striking sheep, some having up to six horns. Their fleeces are mid to dark brown but bleach to cream at the tips in the sun, so the colour can range from a full brown to a softer, deeper and more varied shade.

Alone the Manx is probably more suitable for outer wear, but the mohair makes it much softer.
