This yarn is exquisite. The soft warm natural yak colour gives a warm undertone to the yarn. This yarn can be dyed or knit as it is. Speckles on this are super soft and look really natural. The yarn is a joy to knit and creates a soft Yak halo. The resulting fabric is super light and warm. This yarn would work well on a larger needle size than 3mm to create a more open Fabric. See below for it being stranded with our Tibetan 4ply. This yarn is strong and would work as a weft, it may work as a warp, but I don’t know how well it would work with a lot of movement from the heddles, if you try it let me know!
I would use this yarn for lace shawls/cowls, light sweaters, and works a treat to add a warm halo stranded with other yarns.
