Mighty Mo

The folks at Farmer's Daughter Fibers have sent us a treat. The Mighty Mo is a silk and mohair blend in their gorgeous hand dyed shades.
This weight is really wonderful for holding along with another yarn to add an amazing silky halo. If you combine it with a DK, I'm pretty sure you'll get a worsted weight, but definitely swatch to make sure.
It's pretty rare to find this blend in a hand-dye, so it is a lovely surprise to see such gorgeous colors.

A lot of folks on Ravelry have combined the Mighty Mo with the Juicy DK (also in stock at the shop and also from Farmer's Daughter) to make Caitlin Hunter's Kobuk Hat.

The Mighty Mo is perfect for Andrea Mowry's Birds of a Feather Shawl from Laine Issue No 2, also available as a Ravelry download. Just combine it with your favorite fingering weight!

I don't think these rare beauties are going to last very long, so stop in soon if you see something you love.
