Collection: Merino Silk Yak DK

Luxurious DK weight (8 ply) yarn. So soft for garments worn right next to your skin, yarn with light drape that is perfect for a thicker warm shawl, scarf or cowl but it would make a super comfortable and warm sweater, cardigan or other garment.

The yak content in this yarn gives the dyed effect a lovely grey moody undertone to the colourways, the silk gives a slight sheen and drape and the Merino adds memory to keep your garment in shape.
