CHILE MOCHA - rich, warm brown
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 absolutely LOVE this yarn base! And the colors (must admit I bought some of almost every color) are GORGEOUS! I can't knit and crochet fast enough to keep up with all of the yummy yarn I get from Chandi; she's a sorceress!
Very soft and rich
This is the softest yarn I have ever used. Its soft and squishy and knits up with incredible stitch definition. I made a hat with this yarn and I almost didn't want to give to the person I made it for, so I had to order more to make myself something with it.
