Baby Yak Medium
"mYak is a yarn with a humanitarian cause. Each skein that is bought supports the nomadic herders of Tibet, allowing them to continue to protect their cultural traditions and their ancestral lands. mYak yarn not only has a direct positive impact on people and the environment, the yarn is a pleasure to knit with. The colors, which are overdyed, have a beautiful depth to them and are based on the Tibetan landscape-all working together in a harmonious palette. "
Humanely sourced from the baby yaks kept by nomadic Tibetan herders, the fiber that goes into this bouncy 3-ply yarn is softer than cashmere and warmer than wool. mYak forgoes all decoloring and and chemical processes to show respect for the fiber and the earth, leaving a beautiful palette of dark, saturated jewel tones and rich, inky neutrals, as well as heathered natural shades.
Spun to the highest standard in Italy, this yarn is a pleasure to run through your fingers as you work and the finished fabric is so soft and snuggly against your skin. This yarn lends itself perfectly to accessories and luxurious next-to-the-skin garments.
