Lion Brand’s LB Collection Merino Yak Alpaca Yarn has three luxury fibers are expertly blended into one perfect yarn.

The merino adds softness and bounce, the alpaca adds luster and drape and the 15% yak adds warmth and a bit of mystery to this luxury yarn.

This classic worsted weight has a generous amount of yardage for a 50g ball. What does this mean? Surprisingly light weight projects that work up quickly and don’t take a huge bite out of your wallet!

Review Summary:

“The merino, yak and alpaca blend drew me in and that combined with the lovely, soft colors made me buy it. Well-spun and wonderfully consistent in the hand, it knits to a lovely, soft, light-feeling fabric with loft. I am using it to make the Emory Toque from the free pattern on the website. Designated a #4 worsted weight yarn, I am using a US number 8 needle (5 mm) and the results look just right. A beautiful yarn I will purchase again, and I look forward to re-purchasing the oatmeal color (which was sold out when I went to buy more) but all the colors are delightful. This yarn would be good for accessories like the hat I am making but also would make a beautiful sweater. Ample yardage makes the price well-worth it.”

Merino Yak Alpaca Yarn | Lion Brand OMG! What a beautiful knitting experience. I made my daughter a beret for Christmas-the blend of wool, alpaca and yak is the softest, silky warmth I've had the pleasure of working with outside of handspun. Wish you had more colors!
