Magnetic properties of the KDy(WO 4) 2 monoclinic magnet have been measured in the temperature range from 0.6 to 100 K and in magnetic fields up to 4 T. The strong anisotropy of magnetic properties in the crystal studied was established. The paramagnetic Curie-Weiss temperatures as well as the AFM exchange constants along three crystallographic axes were determined. The magnetic phase transition was fixed at temperature of 0.7 K.
