Nunki

I offer this exceptional 29% yak / 71% merino blend yarn in 6 luscious colors. From lovely buttery rum golds to a deep tawny port .

Spun from the very soft down of the yak you'll find this yarn 10-15% warmer than wool alone.

With 93 yards per skein, you'll want two skeins to knit the fabulously soft and warm hat shown below - or a fantastic pair of mittens. There was enough yarn left from the second ball of Nunki that the pompom could have been made from the yarn itself, but since I sell these French rabbit pompoms at the store, I decided I needed to put one on a hat to help promote them!

The hat pattern I used for the store model is from Ravelry: Moss Cables.

Nunki is recommended knit at 3.75 - 4 sts/inch on a US 8.

Price per skein: $16.50/sk.
