This is our best-selling base and it is no wonder..... After cashmere, this yak base is the softest we have and it is perfect for wool allergy sufferers, as it does not contain wool from sheep and therefore no lanolin, which often is what you react to. In addition, it is a delicious light base in which you do not get too hot and therefore it is good for e.g. summer blouses or sweaters that should not be too warm. Due to the slightly heavy fibres, it is recommended to knit your sweater 2 - 3 cm shorter than intended, as it may give a little length in use. This base contains 50% silk, which may cause it to tease a little when wound on a cross key device. Therefore it may be a good idea to win it up by hand. Make a cup of coffee and enjoy your luxury yarn while you wind it up.
