La Gran
La Gran
Our flagship yarn, La Gran is the best mohair on the market. It is available in so many colors, you will find just the right one for your special project!

Mohair is fine and lustrous and has many of the good qualities of wool. It’s fairly soft and can absorb moisture yet still feel warm and dry. Knitted on a large needle, it’s lightweight and airy. La Gran is spun with a strong binder—a combination of wool and nylon—to secure it. The fluffy surface is the result of a good brushing.
