Softyak DK transcends the seasons thanks to its blend of cotton, yak and nylon. It has a stunningly soft handle and is static resistant and anti-microbial, which means the fabric stays fresher for longer. The chainette construction makes it surprisingly light for a cotton rich double-knitting yarn and it's available in colours ranging from muted tones to rich jewel shades.
