I first used this yarn in 2012, when I knit a scarf which I gave to a friend for Christmas that year. I immediately fell in love with the fluffy softness! At the time, this yarn was only available in two color options, Natural Brown and Natural Cream.
|Dun Bonnet, just one of 24 color options from the Outlandish collection.|
Why do I love this yarn so much? For starters, I love the fiber content: a luxurious blend of 75% yak and 25% merino. The resulting 2-ply yarn is lofty, without being too loose or too overspun:
Himalayan Trail, but the resulting knitted fabric is super-soft without feeling fragile. Not only that, but the scarf I knit for myself last fall has yet to pill, and I've worn it quite a bit this winter.
|Bonus: you can probably find a colorway which matches your favorite teacup!|
