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.

I LOVE this yarn. It is soft, silky and lustrous. This is one of my all time favorite yarns! I hope it will become a part of PDS's standard yarn bases!
I have enjoyed using each of the Polka Dot Sheep yarns that I’ve acquired during the pandemic (and I’m having quite a time building my stash!) The colors are beautiful and the yarn is a pleasure to use. The Yaak is really a spectacular yarn. It is luxuriously soft to work with and makes a gorgeous finished product. I’ve used it in Chief Cliff and Gunmetal and absolutely love it. Thank you for such a great product and marvelous customer service!
This yarn is really wonderful. Soft and with a nice subtle sheen. For some reason it is a little hard to maintain even tension, so some thing to note if you are as ocd as I am.
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.
