Gorgon’s Head Coral is a variegated yarn with bright orange, coral, hot pink and moss green.
Originally the fifth instalment of the 2014 Simply Sock Club, Gorgon’s Head Coral first appeared on Silk Stocking.
Kid Glove Lace:
70% superfine kid mohair, 30% silk
Care: Hand wash only. This yarn will felt if washed in hot water and/or with agitation.
Air dry flat in the shade.
Warm, strong and light, this yarn is twice the length of better known commercial brands. Mohair provides soft warmth, whilst the shine of the silk peeps through the fluffy halo providing strength. Use a single strand to produce cobweb-like lacework; use double to produce a thicker fabric for luxurious soft fluffy tops. One skein is enough for most small to medium sized shawls/wraps, and two skeins are required for larger shawls or small sized sleeveless top/cropped top.
While we try to photograph colours accurately, colours may differ in real life due to variations from monitor to monitor.
