Notify me when back in stock

The Yaak is pure luxury with its fiber blend of yak, silk and merino.  It is quite possible you'll want to cover yourself in this yarn. 

The Yaak has subtle sheen and has a heathered effect with grey undertones. With its wonderful drape and stitch definition, this yarn is perfect for shawls, sweaters, cowls, hats, or anything else you want to make. In fact, one knitter said after knitting and wet blocking her project it was almost as if she couldn't even "feel" her project, it was that soft and ethereal.
