We love the versatility of this fiber. The wonderful sheen and drape of the bamboo, coupled with the memory and warmth of the yak, makes this fiber ideal for any project you have in mind. Great stitch definition makes wonderful cables and lace. The high crimp of the yak fiber, which is the perfect counterpoint to the weight of the bamboo, ensuring your project retains its shape. Additionally, yak fiber felts beautifully, creating a finished fabric that is more supple than the stiff felted fabric created from 100% wool. Use this luxurious yarn for hats, cowls, scarves, and socks,  and you’ll feel heavenly from top to toe!
