Lady Yak is intended as a sleek, modern wardrobe essential. It features a long, lean silhouette, a flattering ribbed detail at the side seams and a wide-set, asymmetrical fold-over collar that frames the face and neck. Although it can be knit in any worsted weigh yarn, the simplicity of the design is the perfect showcase for luxurious fibers with drape or halo.
