Dyed here by Camilla at KNL these gorgeous super soft skeins are amazingly soft and a little bit of luxury for your needles/hook.
We dye 2 skeins at a time in shade – if you would like more of this shade drop us a line and we will be happy to custom dye an order for you.
Fine Yak 4 Ply is 4/17nm in construction with 425m per 100g. It is a sumptuous blend of super soft, extra fine merino wool (19.5 micron), silk and yak. The merino provides warmth and stretch to the yarn while the mulberry silk gives good tensile strength and a smooth luxurious sheen. The yak fibres adds a certain exotic interest to this yarn and also a surprising softness quite similar to alpaca.
This yarn has not been superwash treated. The merino used is mulesing free and comes from South America.
30% Superfine Merino /40% Silk /30% Yak
