October in the Chair Yak/Silk
"October was in the chair, so it was chilly that evening, and the leaves were red and orange and tumbled from the trees that circled the grove." ~From October in the Chair by Neil Gaiman.
*Please note that these are hand-dyed in small batches and colors may vary slightly from braid to braid.
A 50/50 blend of yak and silk.
Yak down can be as fine as 13 microns! It is extraordinarily soft, very warm, with a bit of elasticity. Silk adds shine, strength, and a little bit of length to your drafting zone when spinning. Spin into a fine, warm, silky skein of fibery goodness! An amazing choice for next to the skin garments.
