Yak wool

An incredible soft wool from the yak living in the mountain regions of the Himalayas.

The yak is an ancient mammal that was domesticated by the Tibetan and Mongolian nomads 3000 years ago.

Living in the high altitudes of the Himalayas, where the temperatures drop to -40 degrees Celsius during winter, the yak is well adapted to harsh weather.

Even the roughest yak wool is similar to cashmere. Yak wool is more durable, breathable and easier to clean. Because the wool does not absorb odors and sweat, it naturally needs less washing.

The durability of Yak wool comes from the high levels of amino acids contained within the fibres. Yak wool is very fine, irregularly curved, with a soft luster and a strong elasticity.
