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.

We recommend that all our hand-dyed yarns are hand washed in cool water and dried flat for best care.

 

Hand-dyed in small batches in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Australia. We try to represent colourways as accurately as possible in our product photos. Colours may vary slightly from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot, which is the nature of hand-dyeing. If you buy more than one, we will do our best to match them up. Please ensure you buy enough to finish your project as future dyelots may have subtle differences. We also recommend that you alternate between skeins every few rows on larger projects.
