21.5 micron Merino, Yak from Tibet, Cultivated Silk. 60/20/20
The Yak adds an amazing touch of soft luxury to the merino and silk. This is beautiful fibre blend to spin and when dyed, the soft, brown yak seems to tone the colours down for a more muted or natural tone. When felting, it definitly needs warm water to help with the felting process and will make a gorgeous garment.
Tibetan Yak is a luxury fiber often compared to cashmere and camel down. Yak down is prized for it’s exceptional warmth and softness. Tibetan yak is luxury fiber that is impossible to resist.
The micron count ranges between 19 -19.5. The staple length 2 inches.
I hand dye my yarn and fibre in small batches to ensure unique effects and colour ways. Hand-dyed fibre and yarn, even when dyed in the same pot or pan, will never match exactly and and therefore it is difficult to repeat colour ways even with the same recipes. If you see something you like, be sure to get enough for your project.
