Elliebelly’s New Yarn: Yak Silk DK Weight

We’ve got a new base yarn up in our Etsy Shop this week.

It’s a yarn with exquisite drape. It also holds its shape so that every stitch in a lace pattern is distinct. And, it cables beautifully. This yarn does it all. I’ve enjoyed test knitting with this yarn as much as any base I’ve ever knit with.

Yak Silk DK. 65% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk, and 15% Yak. Each skein has 231 yards of lovely, plump yarn.

The special colorways I’ve created for base yarns with Yak fiber all coordinate beautifully. Knit with them separately or together. Knit a hat or some fingerless mitts in a single color or combine two or more for a shawl. This yarn will knit up at a true DK weight and it’s a pleasure to knit with.
