Knitting for Olive Soft Silk Mohair is a luxurious blend of the finest Kid Mohair and Mulberry silk.Mohair comes from angora goats bred in South Africa, and the yarn is also produced locally. The yarns are traceable back to the individual farms. The Mohair is certified sustainable and RMS (Responsible Mohair Standard). The yarn is produced with high respect for animal wellbeing, and with social responsibility. Their spinning mill follows ethical, technical and environmental standards, creating yarns free from harmful chemicals. The Silk is cruelty free. The silk fibres are collected from cocoons after the chrysalises are allowed to mature into moths and escape. This means that the silk worms are not killed in the process as they are in conventional silk production.
