Lang Yak is an exotic blend of Yak wool and extra fine Australian merino, spun in heavy worsted weight. This yarn has a mottled texture, is machine washable in cold water, and is suitable for any kinds of fall-winter knits, from fashionable sweaters to gloves and caps. Note that the yak hair is very soft, warming, and is moisture regulating. The extremely fine yak's belly hair is usually combed out by hand, and then spun into yarn.
