CHOOSE YOUR COLOR by selecting Skein 1 and Skein 2.
In the example, we used 2 skeins of Faded Kiwi Yak Silk Lace.
WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
It looks beautiful and is ready for gift-giving or keeping all to yourself. ;)
ABOUT THE PATTERN:
ABOUT THE YARN:
Yak-Silk (a 50, 50 blend)
-Creamy to the touch.
-Ultra-soft, like perfect baby's skin.
-Like a dream!
Properties of 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!
Properties of Silk:
-Excellent Insulator: Amazingly, it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter (due to the fact that it doesn't conduct heat)
-Luster: Hello! Shine galore!
-Strength: Long-wearing, durable projects, baby!
-Vivid: Silk takes the dye like crazy... so the colors are rich and bold and saturated.
When yak is combined with silk, you get an amazing, SOFT, lustrous, luxurious, creamy, rich, vibrant yarn that is hard to ignore.
Projects made with this are sure to be adored and exclaimed over and kept for years on end. Do enjoy!
•Softly spun 2-ply lace weight (this is a wee bit thicker than some lace weights, so it's easier to work with, if you're a beginner. Yay!)
•Yardage: 630 m / 680 yd
•Weight: 95-100 g
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 1-3
•Crochet Hook Size: B-D
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 really like this kit, and think it's a good price. The sachet and lotion are well scented, and the lotion is lovely. The bag is a useful project bag. The pattern is quickly memorized and very relaxing. And you get yak-silk yarn! Which is amazing and squishy and so lovely to work with!

I love this kit. I'll be using a sport weight yarn to make mine. The pattern is quite simple and good for beginners. Thank you, Chandi!

The kit is lovely and I adore the lavender sachet and the lotion bar. I chose the Mocha colourway and it looks good enough to eat. The pattern card was torn nearly in half (the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars). I'm assuming it must be from rough handling by the postal service. The only possible improvement I would suggest for the kit is to laminate the pattern card.

I opened my "self love kit" and the smell of lavender filled the room. It was amazing. The yarn is the perfect blend of softness with out to much fluff. The color. Oh the color. It is stunning! I've been work with this yarn for a week and have loved every min. The pattern is simple so it's easy to memorize. I knit in the car while waiting to pick up 3 of my five kids from school. It gives me a much needed break and some me time. Thanks Chandi, your love of what you do shows in the beautiful products you create.
