Shokay Add to My Favorites
"Shokay" yarn is made from a luxurious, ultra-soft fiber from the Himalayan region of Western China. The word "shokay" means "yak down" and that's just what you get -- 100% pure yak down, fiber rarely seen in the Western world due to its remote and isolated locations. The yak fiber is hand-combed and then spun into a lovely worsted-weight yarn that brings you the same warmth that protects the yaks in sub-zero temperatures. Perfect for one-of-a-kind, extravagant gifts!
