Is it a kerchief, shawl or a bandana… at a pinch it can be used as earwarmers too! This quick neck warmer in Northiam DK held with Beyul Halo or Hythe kidsilk lace yarns. The simple shape is knit from side to side in stockinette making it simple to modify.

Play with yarn weights, stitches or colour - stripe, block or fade - have fun with it

This bundle uses a strand of Northiam DK and new Beyul Halo lace held together for a pluffy Aran weight that feels like a luscious Cashmere without the ethical implications - see below for details!

Yak Faks

--- A single Yak produces a mere 100g of down a year - one average skein of fingering weight yarn - making it a rare and precious fibre! ---

Did you know that Cashmere production is creating huge environmental problems in Asia which are in turn negatively affecting the global climate? Read an article on this problem.

My Beyul is my response to this problem - a yarn with many of the same luxurious properties as Cashmere but none of the nasty consequences. In huge contrast to Cashmere goats, Yaks have a minimal impact on sparse grassland and every single facet of the yak is used for survival making them and their fleece extremely environmental.

All of the Merino I use is sourced from Peru from ethical farms that don't use mulesing on their sheep. Hand-combed or plucked, this short fibre sits between the most luxurious fine Cashmere and softest baby Camel in micron thickness and has a similar butter-soft handle and gloriously gentle halo… however - it has the added benefit of pilling less than either fibre.

Yak is durable, breathable, lightweight and its incredible thermal properties keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
