Our Yarn

JewelEmbrace
Inspired by the warm embrace we received from Tibetan friends when we first entered their homes, our first yarn – Embrace – is 100% pure yak down of the finest quality.

Sumptuously warm and luxuriously soft, Embrace yarns make truly unforgettable accessories. Perfect for a shawl or wrap, a cowl or scarf, a winter’s hat or luxe gloves, Reywa yarns have a buttery handle that is absolutely wonderful to knit with. Our yarn also re-knits well, ensuring those inevitable small mistakes won’t show up in your finished project.

As pieces made with Reywa’s 100% yak down yarns are worn, the yarn blooms slowly, creating a lovely halo of warmth that increases the unique quality of the item.

  1. The yarn looks beautiful – can’t wait to get my fingers in it.

  2. Hey, I would love to try some baby weight (3 or 4 ply) in mixture of both yak/merino and yak/bamboo for stuff for newborns. Can’t wait to see what you decide!
