Spring is in the air, and with summer just around the corner, our thoughts are turning to lightweight knits, perfect for Spring and Summer. Loop has been the proud stockist of mYak yarns for several years, and we want to showcase this gorgeous yarn this week. mYak’s fibres are ethically sourced directly from Tibetan herders, and are collected by hand combing the undercoats of baby yaks and cashmere goats.
