Collection: DK Merino Silk Yak

The yarn base is a natural medium grey colour which is from the Yak wool. It is soft and luscious to work with and to wear. Yak fibre is a very short staple, in fact it is often referred to as Yak Down and is comparable to Cashmere. The Yak in the yarn we buy comes from Tibet and Mongolia where the Yak are free to roam their natural pasture lands which is untouched and rich in natural substances.

Silky soft yarn with good drape that is perfect for shawls, cowls and sweaters. The base is a light grey from the Yak which creates a moody effect when dyed.
