Yasik is a soft blend of Tibetan Yak down and silk, in a natural undyed color. Yak down has a structure similar to cashmere resulting is a soft, fuzzy yarn that's lovely to work with.
Shokay Yak down is hand combed from yaks that live in the Himalayan regions of Western China. Unlike wool, the scales of yak fiber are in a wavy mosaic pattern resulting in a very smooth yarn fiber that does not itch. Each yak only produces about 100 grams of fine down per year making this a fine luxury yarn.

Wow, amazing yarn. So soft and wonderful. I can't wait to turn these into socks! I also am so glad that this is undyed, because I don't like commercial dyes. I like to do medicinal herbal dying to my yarns. Will buy again!

This is the softest, loveliest yarn! Suggestion: could you include the yardage in addition to the weight?

This yarn was out of stock for a while and when I asked about it, I got a very quick response letting me know about when to expect it. A week or two later, I got a message letting me know that it was back in stock. Very pleased with the customer service. Also, this yarn is simply stunning! I love the natural color! Plus, it's super soft! Can't wait to crochet with it!
