This is a yarn kit only for Joji Locatelli's September 2020 design, Wispy Shawl.  Included in the kit are 2 skeins of Ultrafine Mohair/Silk and a 87 yard/20 gram coordinating mini skein in Aussie Extra Fine Single, a fingering weight single ply yarn (single ply is used in the designer's sample) and a stitch marker. 

Pattern calls for 540 yards of mohair and 50 yards of single ply merino yarn, so you should have enough mohair for another small project.  Joji suggests a US Size 6 needle in the pattern.  

We suggest you consider a wooden knitting needle if you're not used to the lightness of the mohair.  The lighter needle makes knitting with the wispy mohair yarn easier.  We carry Addi Olive wood needles, which we love for knitting with mohair, but any wooden needle may make your mohair knitting easier.

The mohair/silk:

Lace weight 72% Superkid Mohair 28% Mulberry Silk

50 grams/1.764 ounces per skein (Kit is for 2 skeins, 100 grams)

420 meters/459 yards per skein  (Kit is for 2 skeins, 918 yards)

Gauge (stockinette stitch):  32 stitches x 40 rows over 10 cm (4 incehes ) on 3.25 (US 2-6) needles
