This base is completely similar to our best selling base - the regular dark yak that we have had for years. This one is just a little thicker. 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 thus no lanolin, which is often what you react to. However, this version is somewhat lighter in that and does not fall as heavily as the other base. It is perfect for sweaters and is wonderfully easy to knit with and gives a deliciously uniform result.
We work a lot with image editing of our products and we do our best to achieve the most natural image of the yarn. However, you should be aware that the colors may vary, depending on the screen you are viewing the images on.
