Yak Socks - a wonderfully soft 3-ply twisted precious socks yarn for the highest demands. Almost too good for socks, it can be used to make the finest scarves and tops as well. Hand dyed on a base yarn consisting of 70% merino wool from South America, 20% finest yak hair with 10% Polyamid for a perfect stability.
Hand dyed with professional colors for wool and silk
Please note: hand dyeings are always unique. Even within several skeins of a dye lot small deviations are possible. With larger knitting pieces I recommend to work with 2 skeins alternately to ensure a more evenly knitting pattern.
The colors may differ slightly from the original, depending on the monitor display. We recommend the use of a modern mobile phone or tablet on Android, Windows or Iphone base, as it will be the closest possible match.
