There is a new skein size, with a slightly different fiber content, resulting in a new yarn entry, La Gran New for 2013. Check your ball bands to see where your own stashed yarn should be entered.

Mohair is fine and lustrous and has many of the good qualities of wool. It’s fairly soft and can absorb moisture yet still feel warm and dry. Knitted on a large needle, it’s lightweight and airy. La Gran is spun with a strong binder—a combination of wool and nylon—to secure it. The fluffy surface is the result of a good brushing.
