  • A Merino Silk Yak Fingering Rainbow

December 12, 2020

Today's Shop Update includes 24 colourways on our popular Merino Silk Yak Fingering base.

This yarn is a stunning summer weight yarn, which is slightly cool to the touch due to the silk content.  It is perfect for light weight summer garments, shawls and other special accessories.

The yarn is luxuriously silky and drapey, with good twist and a stunning natural grey-brown base colour due to the yak content.  Further information about the base can be found here.  

Colourways appear rich and heathered when dyed on this base.
