Please refer to this review. I can’t add much except that I changed the needle size. There is no way you’ll ever knit a fine mohair at a dk weight on US2 (3mm). I wasn’t anywhere near it on the LE Mode Light Mohair Long Prints. This time, I used a US 4 (3.5mm) metal and got the stated gauge after blocking of 22s/4”.

This yarn seems to be the exact same, except it’s dyed in solid colors, rather than in the long, softly striping prints of last month.

The colors are saturated and very pretty. Mohair lovers’ will like this one again, especially if you grabbed some of the Long Prints last month. I’d use this as a carry-along with a lace weight wool to do wraps or even with a heavier wool for felting items. The soft halo is lovely.

Notes:

- US4 (3.5mm) metal
- Unblocked: 22/3.75”, 8rpi
- Blocked: 22/4”, 8rpi (rows did not change!)
- Broke with a hard tug
- Frogged well!
- Soft, with light halo
