This Week's Featured Yarn: Softyak DK

We have so many yarns in the shop that you may not know about them all! This weeks featured yarn is Softyak DK.  A perfect all-season yarn for any climate.

Softyak DK is a luscious yarn that plies cotton, yak, and viscose fibers into a sturdy, chainette structure to create fabrics with fantastic lightness and drape. The combination of Yak and cotton means it knits like a fine wool yarn, is not stiff, and will not stretch either. Your knits will be superbly soft and exceedingly comfortable to wear year-round!

This yarn is perfect for the Garter Stitch Pullover (size inclusive).
Pattern is available at the shop with Softyak DK purchase.

We stock all of the beautiful colors of Softyak DK ranging from neutrals to rich jewel tones, and each of the nature-inspired shades is full of depth and dimension.

Easy Peazy Shawl - 3 skeins and free on Ravelry.

It's also worth noting that Softyak DK is machine washable, meaning it's a great option for adult and kid-sized sweaters, or anything else you prefer to be easy care!

Celosias is the perfect spring/summer project in Softyak DK.
