Our yarn is hand spun by Tibetan artisans using a drop spindle and 100% Tibetan yak down fiber. It is not mass produced on machines in a factory. It is not blended with other fibers. It is completely handmade with the best yak down fiber we can find. This yarn is very soft, warmer than wool, and does not itch. Get your hands on this beautiful yarn!
Bulky: 90-120 yards/100g, knits up to 14 stitches/4 inches, bulky weight yarn = 7-9 wpi Medium: 130-190 yards/100g, 10-12 wpi Our Medium weight yarn is divided into a heavier Winter Medium (130-160 yards) and a lighter Fall Medium (170-190 yards) weight.
Light: 200-300 yards/100g, knits up to 21 stitches/4 inches 13-15 wpi Our Light weight yarn is divided into a medium Spring Light (200-240 yards) and a finer Summer Light (250-300 yards) weight.
All of our yarn is balled into 100g balls and is as individual as the spinner who made it. Just as every knitter works each stitch into their own unique gauge, the spinners work fibers into their own unique yarn. As a result, the yardage for the yarns may vary.
Because we employ many Tibetan women to hand spin our yarn, we can provide yarns in bulky, medium and light weights. Each yarn has been knitted into a swatch using a stockinette stitch to determine the gauges that are provided.
