We recently replenished our supply of Kelbourne Woolens Andorra, a bouncy sport weight blend of merino and highland wool with a dash of mohair.
Kelbourne Woolens Andorra:
- sport weight
- 60% merino wool, 20% highland wool, 20% mohair
- 185 yards/50 g
- $12 each
Not long ago, I put together some color combinations for a knitter interested in combining Andorra with a lace weight mohair for Jacqueline Cieslak’s “Water Born” headwrap. I noticed that the Andorra color palette lined up beautifully with Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud, matching in places or providing a bit of contrast and interest in others.
Shibui Tweed Silk Cloud:
- lace weight
- 65% silk, 35% mohair
- 191 yards/25 g
- $23 each, or $25 for special Julie Hoover colors.
What else to make with these delightful pairs? Check out PetiteKnit’s “Anker’s Hat,” Isabell Kraemer’s “Leni” hat, or Emily Luis’s “Frida” headband.
