Soft and floaty, Quince & Co.’s new yarn Piper might make you fall in love with mohair in a whole new way. Blended with a 50% mix of merino this yarn has a smoother texture than brushed mohair with more stitch definition, but still a gorgeous halo.  With a range of pastel shades this almost lace weight is perfect for warm and light hats, jumpers and of course shawls.
