Long, light and delicate, this mohair scarf is perfect for adding a subtle layer of warmth to any outfit – you could even wear it as a dainty shawl with an elegant dress.


Designer Rosee Woodland, who created the pattern for Simply Knitting magazine, says: “I chose this ultra-soft Bessie May yarn for its gorgeous blend of kid mohair and silk, so that it won’t itch when worn against bare skin and will feel luxurious whatever you decide to team it with.” We think the Berry shade is glorious too – it’s really flattering against most skin tones. Using just 100g of Bessie May’s Grace yarn, this luxury yarn will be a good investment too. If you are struggling to find this yarn, choose an alternative mohair and silk blend from our best mohair yarns round up article.
