I hope someone who knows fibers and allergies can explain this to me. My Autumn Harvest was made from Cotton, Merino and Colinette's Parisianne Mohair blend. Knitting it up I was absolutely fine. I washed it, including vinegar and tried it on. BAM!!!! allergic reaction. Now I wear cotton all the time, I wear Merino no problems there so I'm leaning towards the Mohair. Why though would I be able to knit with it but not wear it? Strange to me.
I was visiting Alex's blog Alexandra's Traume - Alexandra's Dream. Warning it is in German. I would imagine you can use Babelfish, I've never used it so I can't tell you how well it works. I was catching up on some posts and found a link to Potter Craft News for this fiber game.
Mohair – A smooth, polished surface
“Mohair is warmer than wool, with larger, flatter scales that contribute to an overall silky-smooth appearance. The fiber absorbs dye readily and, thanks to that smooth surface, reflects it back brilliantly.” –The Knitter’s Book of Yarn
Mohairs are positive and confident. You always strive to make a good first impression because you are a proud person, and you care a good deal about what people think of you. You are careful with your words and are always tactful. You enjoy having a broad base of support and respect from those whom you come in contact. You attract this with your warm, sunny, and inquisitive personality.
