Feliz y Punto YAKME is a sumptuous blend of merino wool, silk and yak. The merino provides warmth and stretch to the yarn while the mulberry silk gives good tensile strength and a smooth luxurious sheen. The yak fibres adds a certain exotic interest to this yarn and also a surprising softness quite similar to cachemir. This single ply yarn is suitable for all kind of garments and has not been superwash treated. The natural gray of the base darkens slightly the colors.
Each skein is dyed individually or in small batches with professional acid dyes. Each skein is unique and different, therefore the same color way looks different from base to base and even from one skein to the next! To ensure random color distribution, we recommend working with two skeins of yarn at once, alternating every few rows each skein.
