Henry's Attic Toaga II
Toaga is a classic, fluffy mohair yarn with a little more heft than most, but still has the feather-light qualities you expect from all that halo! It is lovely worked on its own for lofty, airy garments, blankets, and accessories, or it can be worked along with another yarn for a dense but fluffy fabric. The gauge or sett is so flexible, since you can really compact all that fuzz down to smaller spaces for more density, or you can work it very loosely, and all of that brushed mohair will fill in the gaps, and hold its shape.
Woven scarves or blankets in brushed mohair are delightfully soft and warm, and when mohair is used in conjunction with smooth wool yarns, all sorts of textural possibilities await!
One giant 8 ounce skein can go a long way! One is enough for a large scarf or wrap, and most blankets use just two skeins.
In natural creamy white which varies from batch to batch, and can be dyed with acid dyes.
