Named for its woodsy character and shadowy palette, our brand new Understory makes a wonderful addition to your own family’s story: a cherished baby blanket, a well-worn sweater, a favorite hat. A stunning mixture of 50% baby alpaca, 25% baby yak, and 25% silk, this light worsted weight yarn is remarkably soft and squishy, but also surprisingly light, keeping you warm without weighing you down. All colors of Understory, except the Heirloom White, start with naturally yak-colored yak. The result is a warm underlying nut brown that casts the palette in a luminescent glow… A beautiful vehicle for telling your story!
