This is some of my hand spun yarn from 100% yak fiber. Yaks come in different colors with the most common being dark chocolate brown. The white (cream) comes from the white yak or royal yak which is white and brown. It is a luscious creamy off white and at 15 microns as soft as cashmere. It has a bit squishier texture than cashmere and feels so good next to the skin. Warm and super soft, it is even suitable for use in baby wear and chemo caps.
You are buying a skein that I spun at about a dk to light worsted weight. It is two ply and approximately 100 yards weighing 33.3 grams (1.19 ounces). I also carry this spinning fiber (in three colors), and can spin more of this for a larger project. Just think how nice this would be made into fingerless mitts or something you can enjoy wearing when you want something special.
