Like Mopsy from the Tale of Peter Rabbit, this yarn is one good little bunny. It's the perfect blend of downy Angora and fine merino (and bit of nylon) to create an incredible softness that's a downright joy to knit. It's the perfect lofty yarn to wrap your body in a sweater's-worth of featherweight warmth or the ultimate next-to-skin pleasure for a hat, scarf, cowl or wrist-warmer. It's so luxurious, you'd think it came from a goat, not a rabbit.

Note for the Moonstruck Sweater: Knit to gauge, the fabric is very soft and swishy, and lends breathability to the angora content. Be sure to wet-block or wash your swatch and check your washed gauge – Mopsy opens up quite a bit with washing! A Moonstruck knit from Mopsy will be very fluid and sport a fine halo from the angora. Not a windblocking fabric, but an elegant, cozy knit.
