Sounds strange, but feels incredible! The downy fiber harvested from Mongolian yaks provides a unique mix of softness and durability. Yaks have different layers in their wool coats, much like goats. ULA + LIA only uses the finest, softest down layer that 1-3 year old yaks produce in the middle of bitter winters. The guard hairs that remain after the brushing process are separated from the downy ‘yak cashmere’ before being spun into yarn.

Due to their unique habitat of high elevations and bitterly cold temperatures, yak wool is very fine and soft, but also comprised of abnormally long and durable fibers. Like merino wool, yak wool is also finding its way into base layers due to its strength, warmth, and natural wicking properties.

Easy to work with, dark intense color

I had never used this yak wool before but took a chance on it after seeing it reviewed on Bag-O-Day. I have started a knitted hat with it. It has a good tight twist, good stich definition, I am finding it a pleasure to work with. Its a great value. I am waiting to see how much it softens up after the hat is completed. This is a great company, they shop fast and its for a good cause. I feel good about purchasing from them, they also ship really quick too! I ordered a skein of their emerald green cashmere and am looking forwards to seeing how that works out.

Luscious!

I was amazed how fast it got here! I will not be able to knit with it for a while as we are in the midst of moving our household. But, I had to at least wash it. It washed up beautifully and the color is exactly what is wanted. Can’t wait to get settled in our new house so I can cast on with it!

Love knitting with baby yak!

Thank you Diane, I'm happy to hear you like the yarn!

Sheep Wool/Cashmere Blend Yarn - Olive Green - Fingering

As always the yarn is amazing! I love the deep green color too. I'm very happy to be able to support this Kickstarter.

Thank you Susan, and thanks for joining the Kickstarter again!

I love this yarn...it's perfect for the sweater I'm making!

Thank you Joan! I hope the sweater comes out as planned.

Wonderful Yarn

Very soft yarn!!! I am happy and excited to work with this yarn! I am knitting a sweater now. A few years ago I ordered yak yarn here and I love my sweater. This is a picture of my yak sweater. I believe my cashmere sweater will be beautiful and comfortable as well.

If you loved the yak I'm sure you're going to love the cashmere too. The sweater looks perfect, thank you for sharing!

Lovely yarn and softness

Lovely yarn, easy to wah out spinning oils for super softness

Thank you Ina, I hope you can find the perfect project for the softness!

Deep Red Beauty

This cashmere is so wonderful to knit with. I'm on my second sweater with Ula & Lia Cashmere yarn. The first was the natural colored (which I dyed after I knit it) yarn. After washing it, I was amazed at how much it "bloomed". Love it!

Yes the washing definitely makes a huge difference. Thank you for building up a wardrobe with our yarns!

Gorgeousness! Love it so much!!

Thank you!

Love it!

I love trying new yarns and this is a wonderful addition to my stash!

Thank you Deborah, I hope you can find a good project for it!

socks

second purchase of socks and have recommended them to others. Will continue to purchase.

Thank you! We've still got plenty in stock to make it through this next winter, so we'll have more!

Nice colour, beautiful yarn

I almost completed my project. This yarn (fingering) is soft and is a very good choice for kids.
The colour is very pretty and the thickness of the yarn are perfect for a light dress, sweater, polo. Jacket will be good with DK or double fingering.
My granddaughter liked it a lot when I asked her to try it to see how it fits and estimate the length.

Thank you for sharing the picture, it looks great! I'm very happy to hear you are enjoying the yarn!

Baby Yak Wool Yarn

I have made several gauge swatches and the yarn is a delight to knit. The natural color is lovely and I will be knitting a long cozy sweater with it.

Thank you Wendy, I hope you enjoy working up the sweater!

Washes up very soft

I used this skein as well as a couple browns from last year in a project. This years yak seems softer than the previous year. Very fluffy and beautiful. Improved greatly after washing and them steaming the final project to get a good bloom.

The yak continues to impress me as well. Thank you for leaving the review, I'm happy you are enjoying the yarn!

Delightful

Love the color and the weight. Feels like butter.

Thank you for the review Kathy, I'm glad to hear you're happy with it!

Absolutely beautiful

I finished a project with the platinum, undyed baby yak DK and absolutely loved the outcome. So I decided to purchase a sweater’s quantity of antique ruby red, and I’m so glad I did! Beautiful deep red, I’ll post images after I make a garment worthy of this beauty!

Thank you for coming back Mary Jo! I hope the ruby project comes out as good as the others

Given 4 skeins as a Xmas gift. Started a Sharon miller shawl. Not enough yarn. Pleasantly surprised that the colour is a match
Would definitely buy this yarn again

Awesome we still had some! Periwinkle was definitely a popular color, maybe we'll do it again in cashmere one of these years!

Beautiful yarn

Basic oversized sweater (will be converted to long sleeves),with 1 lace and 1 fingering. Two lace would be nice too with this voluminous pattern. Breathable, after 2 washes with shampoo became slightly fluffy, which looks very nice. Pretty color too.
Switching to undyed yarn entirely.

Beautiful! I was so happy when we got the blonde camel for this year. Thank you for the review and picture!

Quick service

I ordered product and received it within a week. That was fantastic. The yarn is great quality, just need to figure out what I’m going to make with it.

Happy to hear it got out to you quickly! Hopefully you can find the perfect project for it just as fast. Thank you!

My cat loves it too

Made a sweater for my daughter (with an option of long sleeves) in a combination of fingering and lace. The thickness is about what I wanted.
Both fingering and lace are beautiful and fluffy after I washed the yarn before knitting and after. Laid it flat to dry.

My mom has a cashmere blanket that our cat loves as well. They must have a thing for soft natural fibers. Thank you for the review!

Soft and shiny

I am still working on my project/sweater (either for myself or my daughter) , yet it’s already clear that I love this yarn. It looks beautiful and feels very nice. I was a little concerned that it may slightly irritate skin and didn’t consider to make anything for my grandchildren with yak. It looks like I was wrong.
Strongly recommend to wash it before you start knitting, the fibers “open” and become thicker and softer.

Happy to hear the yak fiber worked out for you! Some people have different levels of sensitivity with what will make them itch or not, but the yak usually doesn't have any issues especially after a good washing. Thank you for the review!

3rd pair!❤️

Love these warm, tightly knit socks so much that I order a new pair every year👍😍. I now have 3 pair to take me through the cold Wes 🤗

I've even started using these on my runs on the cold days. My feet are never happier! Thank you for the review Margo!

Fantastic yarn

Having been part of the Kickstarters for this yarn for a few years, I have to say I am in love with this brand. The yarn washes up super soft and cozy and strong.

Thank you for the years of support Courtney. Have fun knitting up this batch!

Great value for a fantastic product!

I love this cashmere yarn! Beautiful deep, rich colors, soft, but not "slippery" like so much superwash (which I generally dislike). It also arrived super-fast (just a few days after ordering), so overall a great product!

Thank you for the feedback Katie, I'm happy you like the yarn and appreciate the value. I hope you enjoy knitting it up!

Baby Camel wool

I was so surprised by the softness of this wool! I'll definitely be supporting the campaign next year. Supporting independent wool business is near and dear to my heart, and this wool is so worth it!

Thank you for the support Jennifer. Yak wool has gotten a lot more popular since our campaigns started and I think baby camel wool is next in line. It really is super soft! Thank you for the review!
