Yes, it's new yarn time and our latest base is a keeper. I certainly want to keep all of it, but apparently, I'm not allowed!
Meet the soft buttery gorgeousness that is Yak Merino Silk Singles 4ply:
We know how much you love our grey Yak bases for the way they create depth of colour when overdyed and we also know how many of you love single ply yarns, so we decided to combine the two to make an awesome new yarn!
Obviously we had to try it out as soon as it arrived!
It works really well in shades of semi solid yellow, so don't be afraid to try paler colours!
We tried a complex tonal variegated too and found it almost gives an iridescent effect where the dyes have layered up, so you could create some real showstoppers with this.
Available in 120g skeins (480m per skein), this is the perfect yarn for shawls and will have a gorgeous drape when knitted up. Jeni has already claimed the yellow skein!
We can't wait to see what you do with it!
