This listing is for one hank of 100% yak yarn. It is not dyed, this is the natural color - a beautiful chocolate brown. It's remarkably soft and not itchy. This skein weighs about 3.4 oz (95 grams) and is approximately 150 yards.

I recommend US 7-9 needles. Dry clean or hand wash separately in cold water & lay flat to dry. Additional quantities are available, convo me if you need more. I also have 100% camel yarn, a brown yak/bamboo blend, and a white yak/camel blend - click here to see all my yarns, http://www.etsy.com/shop/NorthcottWilson?section_id=5596925

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled yarns, this yak yarn is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to fair trade organizations, but that prevented me from obtaining certain types of eco-friendly yarns whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude towards women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this yak yarn has female executives and supports education for women.

Please note, the shipping rates quoted below are for USPS First Class. For a small additional fee, I can ship via Priority Mail (within the US, Priority Mail for this item would cost $4.90). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you prefer Priority Mail, or if you want to buy multiple items.

Stored in my smoke-free, cat-friendly studio.
