HOBBIT - hunter green
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 purchased the Hobbit Yak Merino because now I can say I have a Hobbit in my house (oh and the color is just beautiful). I got the Mushroom color to go with it and figured I'd make some mitts or a hat with them. Lo and behold Chandi delivers the perfect pattern; The Traveler Slouch and mitts. This yarn is wonderful to work with and is so soft and cuddly. I can't wait until I can put on my mitts.
I love the hue of green, it was exactly what I was expecting and SO soft! It works up nicely, it is warm and strong. Green is one of my favorite colors and this gorgeous hue compliments a variety of my outfits. I made ear warmers and will be making a matching pair of fingerless gloves!
Just as gorgeous as the picture.
This yarn is a dream. I've never felt something so incredible soft in your hand. The stitch definition is great. It truly is like knitting with butter. This one is amazing, hope you keep it around for a long time!
Soft feel (and it smells good) so it will make a fabulous scarf! Color true to picture and it was exactly the high quality feel and color I was anticipating. Also arrived very quickly. Looking forward to working with more of your yarns!
I have started a shawl using this yarn. It is a great yarn! It shows stitch details and is super soft! I am really enjoying this yarn. Can't wait to wear it!!
can hardly wait to put this on my needles - this will be a nice winter cowl for me! yarn is VERY soft and that shade of green is just beautiful
