J’ai acheté 3 balles du même lot, une sur trois était douce. J’aimerais essayer un autre marque la prochaine fois. Pour comparer la douceur.

C'est une laine très doux. Je l'ai combiné avec Drops Alpaca et j'étais satisfaite de résultat. Il y a grand choix de couleurs.

Great Products and Excellent Customer Service

I was looking to order Mohair Silk wool on line, to match previously purchased wool. I contacted Lisette at Biscotte, and asked if they could look at the wools for me. They sent me pictures of the wools side by side and made a recommendation of a different color which I ended up purchasing and totally love. I appreciate all the staffs help they were wonderful to deal with. Thank you.
