Luxurious yarn for that special project. Silky soft yarn with good drape that is perfect for shawls, cowls or luxury socks and gloves. This is the softest yarn we stock.
The yak content in this yarn gives the dyed effect a lovely grey undertone heathered look, the silk gives a slight sheen and beautiful drape.
