Worsted-spun baby yak down yarn is a luxury fiber that will yield a fabric unlike anything you have knit before. Baby yak has a similar micron count around 17 microns to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons.
The baby yak colours are soft, heathered, earthy tones combined with dark neutrals and a few saturated rich tones. Most yaks are a darker shade, making the lighter colours rarer and even more precious.
This yarn is spun and dyed in Italy from the soft undercoat of baby yaks, which is sourced directly from cooperatives of nomadic herders in Tibet.
