Baby Yak / Silk / ethically sourced superwash Merino
120g = 480 meters (522 yards)
Colourway: Yurt – natural heathered linen brown/grey.
Shown with Steppe, Rhubarb and Iceberg.
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.
