This sumptuously soft pair is hand dyed in shades of teal, turquoise, green and black. An exquisite hand and soft shimmering drape make this a great choice for that large shawl pattern you've been coveting. Whether you knit, crochet, or weave, this yarn will make a cuddly soft fabric that you'll want to wear often.

Merino sheep are hardy and thrive in environments which are much too harsh for other domesticated sheep breeds. They are well suited to the high altitudes and mountainous landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island high country, where temperatures can range from 35°C in summer to -15°C in winter. Merino is a breed of sheep famous for its fine, soft wool, and is the "gold standard" to which all other fibers are compared.

Yaks originated in the high Tibetan plateau, and were first brought to Mongolia by Buddhist monks who used them for transport on their pilgrimages. Mongolian yak down is a rare and unique natural fiber. Exotic and soft, yak fiber is warmer than Merino wool, breathable, and naturally water resistant. Have I mentioned how incredibly soft it is? :)

This listing is for two skeins of Fingering weight yarn, as shown, measuring a total of 826 yards.

Blend contains:
60% Merino wool
20% Yak down
20% Bombyx silk

Skein #1

This yarn was spun on my Lendrum ST wheel in a smoke free, pet friendly environment.

This yarn will felt, so if that's not your intention, be sure to handwash your finished garment gently in cool water and lay flat to dry.

If you would like it in a center pull ball, please let me know during checkout.
