Touching worsted-spun baby yak down is a unique experience: a precious fiber that creates a fabric different from anything else you have ever knitted before. 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 to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons.
The colors on Baby Yak Medium are soft, heathered, earth tones combined with dark neutrals and few saturated rich shades. Most yaks are of darker shade, and thus light colors are very rare and even more precious. Only dyed on the natural base colors, no bleaching or decoloring is done so each color will vary from season to season depending on the shade of the natural fibers, making it at times darker and at times lighter.
Chocolate, Desert and Oatmeal are natural, undyed colors.
