mYAK baby yak yarn (medium weight)

40.00

This beautiful yarn is made from the down of baby yak. It’s worsted-spun and has incredible lightness and warmth. mYak works with the nomadic herders to obtain the down, which is then spun into yarn in Italy.

Baby yak has a similar micron count (around 17 microns) to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons. We stock the medium (worsted) weight, which will be great for anything from cowls to hats to sweaters.

mYak starts with three natural shades (chocolate, desert and oatmeal) as the base colour for their yarns, which of course starts from the shades of the baby yak down. It’s then dyed in a soft colour palette that references the five elements of nature.

mYak works with a number of talented knitwear designers to develop patterns for this luxury fibre. The most recent collection of patterns was developed by Kirsten Kapur. Called Vibrant Connections, it has a range of beautiful garments that can be created using this beautiful yarn.

Some specs: This is worsted weight yarn (3 ply) with approx 114 metres / 125 yards per 50g skein. it knits up to a gauge of 18-20 stitches for four inches on 4.5mm to 5.5mm needles (US sizes 7 to 9).

NOTE: We have more mYak on the way, including burgundy and the lighter colours of oatmeal, emerald, and saffron. Along with this we also will soon stock small quantities of a few of the Tibetan “pop” colours in cashmere.
