Field Testing

zero degrees? no problem!

While some of team Reywa are sweating it out over pots of dye in LA, others of us are spending the winter with family in Alexandra, New Zealand  – a place renowned for having the coldest winters in New Zealand. What better place to try out our wonderful new yarns! With knitters all over the country churning out samples, we have been field testing hats, gloves, sweaters and scarves in this very harsh climate. The results are amazing. Despite early morning temperatures well below freezing, we remain warm and comfortable with our layers of yak yarn clothing. We have previously been merino wool advocates, but Yak yarn is truly a lot warmer than merino, and incredibly soft and comfortable to wear.  Bring on the cold!
