Alright so there are some down sides to working
with mohair. For example, it can be extremely difficult to rip back a project
when you need to fix a mistake. Those little mohair pieces love to stick to
each other, making the task a difficult feat of strength. Here
is a helpful tip featured in the Lantana Scarf pattern "If you need to rip out
stitches, first put the scarf in your freezer for 10 minutes. The cold will
calm the sticky mohair and make it easier to undo." It really does help, give
it a try next time!
Another challenge can be caused by the fuzzy and soft stitches... it does require a bit more concentration to see what you are doing with a mohair yarn. Make sure to swatch and get the hang of working with your yarn before starting the project.
