Description: Two camisoles - one with halter neck - and a shawl. Lacy patterning is created by drop stitches. "Kismet is a subtle blend of acrylic and mohair, giving a soft and feminine look while retaining machine washability"; as an acrylic yarn it had a very good yardage so bear that in mind when substituting.
