Rowan Softyak DK is a blend of 15% yak, 76% cotton, 9% nylon and is a DK weight giving knitters the best of all possible worlds: the softness of cashmere - with less of the price tag - plus added durability and washability. The blend of cotton and yak hair gives a pretty melange effect as the yak is a dark fibre and absorbs the colour differently to the cotton.
