Sheila from BigFootFibers has lovingly hand dyed the most luxurious blend of merino, silk and yak we have ever seen. The tonal, heathered palette of Silky Yak DK is simply breathtaking, and the silk component adds a sheen and softness that is perfect for next-to-skin garments and accessories.
Shelley couldn't resist joining in on the fun of designing a custom yoke and cast on a cropped version of the Strange Brew pullover from tincanknits (size SM). Using the colorwork motif found in the Clayoquot Toque, she managed to end up with a stunning sweater and a hat to match using 5 skeins in MC French Lavender and 1 skein each of two CCs, Sugar Skull and The Cranberries. Both patterns were knit with size #4 and #6 needles and are available from tincanknits on ravelry.com.
As with all hand-dyed yarns in small batches, we recommend making sure you order a sufficient quantity to complete your project, and that you alternate skeins every other row during your work.
