Our newest addition to the shop is Yaku by CaMaRose, a 100% high quality superwash merino fingering weight yarn. What makes it so special? Yaku's colour range has a lovely heathered finish that elevates this yarn above your average superwash merino wool, giving your knitting or crochet project a more sophisticated look with depth in their shade range whilst keeping great stitch definition and a beautiful texture.
Yaku is unbelievably soft and would be ideal for your next knitting or crochet project! Not sure what to cast on? We have compiled a couple of ideas here as project inspiration for you!

This asymmetrical triangle shawl from Melanie Berg would be an ideal knitting project for Yaku. Slipped stitches and short rows would not only give this effortless shawl texture but would also highlight Yaku's sophisticated colour range. Pick some colours that suit your personality and you will have a charming shawl to wrap around you in no time.

This incredibly popular raglan sweater is a simple, yet classic pattern for a knitter looking for an effortless project to cast on. The No Frills Sweater calls for a fingering weight yarn held double with a mohair lace to give it that fluffy, soft look and feel which gives this pullover its everyday outfit charm. Looking for a mohair lace to pair with Yaku? Try Adriafil's KidSeta - the colour range will complement it perfectly.
