This is our 50% yak 50% silk base that is a wonderfully soft and luxurious yarn. With its light and slightly shiny structure it feels sublime next to the skin! Ethically sourced high-quality fibers carefully hand dyed with plants! This particular shade was dyed with walnut.
Our two yarn bases in comparison: on top is the Yak/Silk base with its smooth and silky texture, shown in colorway “Mountain Top”. On bottom is the Sport Silk/Mohair base with its fluffy fibers and subtle sheen, shown in “Peach”. Both carefully hand dyed with plants!
A solo shot of tumeric on 50% yak and 50% silk yarn. Yak is a very strong and durable fiber, and gets close to cashmere in regard to softness. Both silk and yak fibers offer excellent thermo-balance characteristics - in cold weather it keeps you toasty, while in warmer weather it feels airy and cool to the touch. Plus there is that extra sheen from silk fibers. This yarn has it all!
