The Design

"Silky-sheer bliss."

When Boston-based author and long-time Churchmouse friend, Alexandra Dane, attended a writing retreat in Seattle, she stopped by the shop wearing a scarf that turned our heads. It was just the kind of thing we love—simple, simple, simple! Just a sheer tube pressed flat, we’ve knit it again and again.

In Isager Silk Mohair, Alexandra’s Airplane Scarf becomes silky-sheer bliss. The soft shimmer of silk glows through the airy halo of mohair in this lace-weight yarn. Silk Mohair is so light, it nearly defies gravity! Of course, leave it to Isager to devise an exquisite color palette—full of soft, lustrous shades each more delicious than the last.

For a bit of fun, we created a crocheted edging in bright, impactful ITO Sensai, another brilliant silk/mohair blend. But you can use any scrap mohair you like!

Pick up the Alexandra's Airplane Scarf pattern below (If you already own this pattern, no need to purchase an additional one here). We've chosen some color pairings below, but feel free to create your own by visiting the Isager Silk Mohair and ITO Sensai pages!
