About Yak:

Yak down can be as fine as 13 microns! It is extraordinarily soft, very warm, with a bit of elasticity. Spin into a fine, warm skein of fibery goodness! An amazing choice for next to the skin garments. This is also a great fiber to blend with others. *Information from The Fleece & Fiber Sourcebook by Deborah Robson and Carol Ekarius.

Average review
This fiber is amazingly soft! It's a little harder to spin than merino, but once you get the hang of it, it's delightful to work with and makes deliciously soft yarn!

I usually shop in person, but having moved from Portland, decided to order online. Came super fast, was the wonderful quality that I always expect from Casey and is gorgeous spun up. Couldn't be happier!
