AFRICAN VIOLET - heathered lilac/purple tones
YARN - Yak Merino Sport (50:50 Tibetan Yak and Superfine Merino Wool)
One word? Cozy.
MERINO WOOL: Creamy and soft and breathes as you wear it. Gives snuggly warmth.
YAK:This is yak down, the softest of yak fibers.
-Warm: It has incredible insulating properties, which allow the animals to survive at extreme temperatures.
-Soft: Incredibly soft... buttery is truly the word that comes to mind! Your fingers will thank you as you work with this!
-Strong: Surprisingly strong (stronger than wool), for durable, long-wearing projects.
-Breathable: Do you ever feel sticky in synthetic fibers? Not so with yak... it breathes! It wicks moisture away from your body and releases it into the air, thus allowing you to feel fresher (and smell better!).
-Anti-Microbial: It doesn't attract the little microbes that live on sweat, so your garment stays fresher longer and won't get all stinky. Yay!
These two fibers combined creates a soft, touchable, slightly rustic yarn ideal for sweaters and accessories.

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I like the yarn, and the color is pretty, but I was disappointed at how different the color is in person versus online. It's a darker violet/purple than it appeared on my phone and computer screens. It also looks almost shimmery here, which it is not at all.
and the color is SO PRETTY!
