Ella Rae calls this Olive, but this is a lovely soft mint green. This is the one yarn I can wear up next to my neck. No matter how cold it is, this mohair and silk blend keeps a cushion of warm air. Double strand with a US#8 needle, using a worsted weight pattern, and you will be amazed. I like to find a nice merino wool in a matching color and knit or crochet 1 stand of each. Not only will it knit or crochet up fast, it will totally amaze you with the end result.
Worked up in a lace pattern or worked together with another yarn, this lace weight strand of yarn adds a considerable amount of warmth.
