Kid Silk by Nurturing Fibres takes the best South African kid mohair and spins it with silk core for strength. The result is a beautifully light, soft and luxurious - not to mention incredibly warm - yarn. It knits into dreamy shawls and garments and can be worn directly against the skin. Building on a vintage palette, the kidsilk shades range from earthy neutral beige and greys, through to soft warm pinks.
Colour ways are dyed in small dye lots to ensure a high standard and uniqueness - always only using OEKO Tex certified dyes.
About Nurturing Fibres
Based in South Africa, Nurturing Fibres have developed their dyeing methods over the last 12 years and for a relatively small production facility, have implemented some fantastic measures to mitigate the environmental impact of dyeing and increase socioeconomic benefits to the local community. Wastewater from the dye process is treated and used to irrigate the olive orchard and staff vegetable garden, and heating for the dye process is solar powered.
They hand select yarns to ensure they are the best quality merino wool, mohair and cotton available. They are proud of the high quality fibres that South African farmers produce, so [with the exception of cashmere] work with yarns that come from SA farms and are locally spun.
