Let’s hear it for another beautiful new yarn by Debbie Bliss! (on sale now, for a limited time)
Let me tell you about one of the absolute softest yarns I’ve ever had a chance to touch: [Sorry, item discontinued or temporarily out of stock] . This is part two of the Pure Bliss Collection, a new collection of uniquely luxurious yarns from Debbie Bliss. Wait until you hear what’s in it!
Soft as cashmere and warm as wool, yak is known to be a superstar fiber in the knitting world, and it is a rare find. Speaking of cashmere, this yarn has that too! Lhasa is a 50/50 blend of yak and cashmere, so you know it’s going to perform well and feel incredible. Lhasa also boasts a chainette construction; this provides strength and stability to the yarn while maintaining a smooth surface to further highlight the EXTREME softness of the fiber content. You almost can’t feel it when you touch it, it’s so darn lofty and soft.
Just like with the Debbie Bliss Falkland Aran Yarn - Organic Merino I told you about a while back, Debbie Bliss has released a book of beautiful patterns to be knit up out of the Lhasa . These patterns range from smaller accessories to a few larger projects (dubbed as “investment pieces” by the designer herself). The Leaf Cowl (shown on the Lhasa book’s cover) is a unique, approachable way to try a bold color. Available in a simple, but full palette of neutrals and brights, there are plenty of options.

I’m also a fan of the Turtleneck Tank pattern- it’s the perfect project for this yarn, in my opinion. No matter what color you choose, this piece would be a timeless wardrobe staple. Not to mention, this would feel awesome to wear against your skin.
Ok so I’ve been saving the bad jokes for the end. Yashmere, anyone? Perhaps you’d like to make a luxurious cashyak cowl? I sure would.
