curly curly mohair
Anyone have any suggestions what I should make with this absolutely beautiful mohair??? I've got plenty and can make just about anything. I'm really not a shawl type person though, and I prefer a denser fabic to a lacy one but I'm open to any suggestions.

I haven't been able to find any patterns for it online so have been looking at boucle patterns but nothing seems right. What do you guys suggest?

Thanx much!

If you like a denser fabric, try doubling it up with a strand of wool on larger needles. I've got a sweater and hat and scarf made like that, and I love love love them. You also get more mileage out of it, because of the bigger needles, it goes farther.
