A worsted-weight yarn for fashion with a purpose. Three gently-twisted plies create a bouncy yarn that's a dream to work with. The journey of this fiber begins in Tibet, where baby yak down is harvested by hand, combing the undercoat for short, precious fibers. Off to the finest woolen mills in Italy to be softly spun into plies by expert craftsmen. Hats, scarves or garments will sing in this—warmer than sheep's wool, and as soft as cashmere, this exquisite 100% baby yak is hard-wearing, luxurious and ethically sourced—even organic!
