Shokay Shambala Yak Yarn
Product Description: Shambala yarn is made of soft, luxurious 100% yak down fiber, hand-combed from the yaks in the exotic Himalayan regions, bringing those who work with it the same warmth that protects the yaks at sub-zero temperatures. This unique hand-knitting yarn is amazingly soft to the touch and comes in a variety of beautiful colors. It is perfect for one-of-kind projects and gifts.
Fairlight Fibers Note: Shambala's 100% yak down creates a very soft, heavy-weight yarn. It isn't cloud-like, like alpaca. Instead, it has a dense, drapey hand that smooshes and springs back almost like cotton. It makes incredible garments that are both warm and lofty, with the stretch of wool and the density of cotton. It is excellent for cables and other patterns that require stitch definition where alpaca or similar fibers won't work.
