Description:

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.

"Since I love to knit fair isle patterns, I was curious to see how this yarns knits up in stockinette. The results speak for themselves - an absolutely even stitch pattern! This yarn knits up easily, practically on its own!”
