If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have no doubt seen countless posts of me knitting my wonderful soft pink version of the Mohair Bias Loop by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. This stunning seamless cowl instantly caught my eye, and within minutes I’d bought and downloaded the pattern. I actually love this pattern so much, I’ve made two in as many months!
I realise this is a controversial post and one that’s difficult to get right for everyone. I myself have encountered issues when following advice on yarns for sensitive skin. I consider myself to be super-sensitive as a lot of self-proclaimed and friend-recommended sensitive yarns have irritated me regardless. And there’s nothing more frustrating that knitting a sweater, only to find you can’t wear it!
Everyone is different and even the smoothest, squishiest (is that even a word) fibres can itch the heck out of some people! So I completely understand if you read this post with some scepticism. I would too. But having done pretty extensive research into this department (read here: fed up with itchy jumpers subsequently banished to the back of the wardrobe) as a guide, here are my top yarns that I have found to be non-irritating and perfect for the sensitive soul that I am!
