Kelbourne Woolens Andorra is a classic sport weight yarn with a vintage feel. It is a soft, strong, and versatile 2-ply blend of merino wool, highland wool, and mohair. Designed with a gorgeous color palette of neutrals, warm earth tones, and cool blues and purples, Andorra is perfect for garments and accessories alike. The blend of soft merino, bouncy highland wool, and strong, sleek mohair, makes this Kelbourne Woolens’ favorite yarn for sweaters with the perfect drape and feel. The mohair is not brushed, so is not overly fluffy. The mohair provides a subtle haze, strength, and sheen.
In addition to its suitability for garments, Andorra shines as a natural alternative for sock knitting. Its mohair content provides exceptional strength and sheen, comparable to synthetic nylon, but without the use of synthetic fibers. The unbrushed mohair fibers lie flat, further enhancing the yarn’s strength and lustrous appearance.
