Description

Regia Premium Merino Yak yarn is a blend of high-quality merino wool from South Africa, polyamide, and yak, with superwash treatment.

These skeins have been specially designed to make a pair of socks with them. With 1 skein of Regia Premium Merino Yak, you can knit a pair of soft, warm, and resistant socks.

The yak wool of Regia Premium Merino Yak will make your garments warm and light.

But Regia Premium Merino Yak is much more than just a sock yarn.

For sure, what had caught your attention is its composition. It is not very usual to find yarn balls with yak wool. Yaks are long-haired domesticated bovids found throughout the Himalayan region, the Tibetan plateau, Mongolia, and Russia. Yaks may have their hair in a huge range of colors, but the most common are grey hues, browns, and other dark tones. Yak wool is soft, warm, and resistant. Considered "luxury cashmere", the yak is around 16-20 microns thick, giving it extraordinary softness and lightness. Historically, yak wool had been worn by Chinese emperors and sheltered nomadic people of Siberia in blankets, tents, and garments on their silk road. Nowadays, yak is used in luxury garments and haute couture.

With these yarn balls by Regia, you can make sweaters, cardigans, shawls,... anything you can imagine to make with a fingering weight yarn and the incredible softness of yak wool.

Do you need ideas of patterns for knitting with Regia Premium Merino Yak?

The natural colors yaks make that this yarn has a mélange effect that looks perfect in fair isle projects, like the Marit sweater by Kristin Drysdale from the Laine magazine issue 7, Kate Davies designs like Land o'Cakes or the Porty Pullover by Gudrun Johnston.

And, of course, with Regia Premium Merino Yak, you can knit all the sock patterns you can imagine. With just one skein, you can make a pair of socks.
