Blankets don’t come much more luxurious than when they’re woven in brushed mohair. Mohair is strong, durable and, above all, warm. Wear one of these bad boys and you’ll need to turn down that heating a few notches. The JST Spring Stripes Mohair Blanket Kit has everything you need to make a beautifully coloured blanket evoking glorious crisp spring days.
I wove my first mohair throw in 1982 and since then I have woven over a thousand of them. They are so light and warm and comforting…. they age beautifully, getting thinner with the years but somehow they maintain all their warmth…. unlike me 🙂
To this day they make me think of my Auntie Kay… she had a mohair throw from Scotland that I coveted as a child, always wishing I could take it home. Now you can make your own to snuggle under or give them away as very special gifts….once you get under one of these blankies you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Each kit contains the following:
- One set of instructions to weave one mohair throw 41” x 74” plus fringes, includes instructions for warping with sticky threads front to back; threading; weaving and finishing.
- Warp: material for 1 x 3 yard warp containing 270 threads
- Weft: appropriate colours for pattern
- Approximately 800g of mohair
