Worsted-spun baby yak down yarn is a luxury fiber that will yield a fabric unlike anything you have knit before. Baby yak is similar to cashmere, it is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons.
Their baby yak colors are soft, heathered, earth tones combined with dark neutrals and few saturated rich ones. Most yaks are of darker shade, and thus light colors are very rare and even more precious. Warmer than wool, and as soft as cashmere, our 100% baby yak is the right choice if you are looking for a unique, ethically sourced fiber good for you, for the environment and for the community that produce it.
They only dye on the natural basis, no bleaching or decoloring. 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.
