I wrote on Tuesday about how I really like mohair.Â I got to thinking about that, and about how much mohair really is in the stash.Â In the interests of full disclosure, I offer the following photographs.Â Keep in mind that I have photographed a representation of each yarn, and that many, many more balls of each exist in the stash unphotographed.
My name is Sarah and I am a fiberaholic.
1.Â The cone of purple mohair.Â I have two of these cones.Â Someday I am going to make a beautiful little cardigan/jacket out of this.
2.Â The white half-ball of mohair.Â Actually, this yarn is almost gone. (Although there is more than I have pictured here, naturally.)Â That’s because I made my sister a sweater set out of white mohair several years ago.Â (You’ll have to pester her for a picture of that one.)
3.Â Â The ball of lilac mohair.Â I have about 12 of these balls.Â One word:Â Ebay.
4.Â Â The ball of black mohair.Â About 15 balls.Â Same word.
5.Â The primary handpainted mohair.Â This is from Ellen’s Half Pint FarmÂ (not our Ellen) and it is beautiful.Â There are 3 big balls.Â It is awaiting a fate as beautiful as itself.
6.Â The ball of sage green laceweight mohair.Â 2 balls of this.Â It is gorgeous and someday I will make something gorgeous from it.Â Promise.
7.Â The green ball of mohair.Â I think I have twenty of these.Â It was on a great sale on elann.Â What can I say?
8.Â The grey ball of mohair.Â See #7, above.
9.Â The gigantic Ziploc bag of unspun kid mohair.Â We’ve talked about this before, haven’t we?
10.Â Not pictured:Â lilac/teal/pink handpainted mohair.Â Purchased at Rhinebeck many moons ago.Â I was swatching with this in a quilted pattern this summer.Â Remember?
Okay, this is the meat of it.Â What I haven’t included:Â yarns that are wool/mohair blends, like Brown Sheep’s Lamb’s Pride, of which I have a largish amount destined for a sweater.Â And then there’s the blue mohair blend, and the handspun mohair skeins, and the Dale yarn which I’m pretty sure has mohair in it…
I can quit any time.
