We get a bit swoony over yarns like this. Although they can be quite blingy, we tend to use them in a more restrained way. Throw a shot of it every few inches in your weaving. Knit it into your mohair confection. But having said that, we've woven it solidly into the weft and the results are gorgeous - this yarn is so fine it will never give you too much of a Liberace look. A bobbin has lots or yarn - about 400m, we're estimating. And the colours are exceptionally subtle when they're this fine.
