Loop Piccadilly in mYak baby yak lace

A few weeks ago we announced the exclusive arrival of the mYak yarns (pronounced My-yak) to Loop by introducing the mYak Baby Yak and Silk fingering. Today we’d like to introduce another beautiful yarn in the range ~ mYak Baby Yak Lace . This yarn is a dream; soft, lightweight but strong. It is made of two plies, gently twisted together creating a delicate, lace-weight yarn tailor-made for lacy shawls and accessories. And, oh!, the softness.

mYak Yarn has arrived at Loop and we’re thrilled! We are the exclusive UK stockists of this incredible range of yarns. This range of subtle, luxurious, elegant yarns comes in a beautiful colour palette. Made of all natural fibres, not only is the yarn beautiful, but it’s ethically sourced and gathered. Paola, the owner behind mYak, spent many years living and working on the Tibetan Plateau and works directly with the yak herders.

Make sure you’re guarded against the chilly winter winds with a pair of cosy mittens! We love mittens as they are an ideal mini canvas to experiment with colour and textures, plus being smaller knits you have the perfect chance to try a new technique. Quick to make, mittens are just the thing for gift knitting too. What do you mean you don’t have a pair!? Don’t worry we’ve selected some of our favourites to keep those fingers busy (and then toasty in a beautiful handmade mitt!)
