The Yaak is pure luxury with its fiber blend of yak, silk and merino. It is quite possible you'll want to cover yourself in this yarn.
The Yaak has subtle sheen and has a heathered effect with grey undertones. With its wonderful drape and stitch definition, this yarn is perfect for shawls, sweaters, cowls, hats, or anything else you want to make. In fact, one knitter said after knitting and wet blocking her project it was almost as if she couldn't even "feel" her project, it was that soft and ethereal.
The Yaak is a limited palette yarn base. It will be available in a select number of PDS standard colors and exclusive colors to the Yaak.

Oh my; this yarn is gorgeous! It's incredibly soft, with great stitch definition and drape. The colors, as usual, are magnificent. I've made three different items in different colors and this is one of my two favorite yarns.
I love this yarn. The stitch definition is sublime and the feel of this yarn is amazing. It’s my new best friend.
this is the silkiest yarn I've ever used. The drape is unbelievable. I would love the purchase again when more colors are offered!
Knitting with this yarn now and the it is so buttery soft. I think my cowl is going to have beautiful drape to it. The colour just shines, too.
