Item details

I hand-spun this extremely soft and luxurious fibre on my traditional Russian spindle. I plied the yarn with a pure silk thread for extra strength and durability

Few in the Western world have ever heard of yak down, a cashmere-like fibre that is hand-combed once a year from the rugged animals dwelling in the mountainous Himalayan regions of Western China.

Length: 201m/220yd
Weight: 30g/1.1oz
Fiber: 80% Yak Dawn, 20% Silk
Thickness: This yarn was spun with some thicker and thinner areas, overall about Sport weight.
WPI: approx 15-16

From a smoke free home.

Thanks for looking!
