A worsted-weight yarn for fashion with a purpose. Three gently-twisted plies create a bouncy yarn that's a dream to work with. The journey of this fiber begins in Tibet, where baby yak down is harvested by hand, combing the undercoat for short, precious fibers. Off to the finest woolen mills in Italy to be softly spun into plies by expert craftsmen. Hats, scarves or garments will sing in this—warmer than sheep's wool, and as soft as cashmere, this exquisite 100% baby yak is hard-wearing, luxurious and ethically sourced—even organic!
Working hard to preserve the natural properties of the fiber, mYak (pronounced My-yak) skips all decoloring and chemical processes, guaranteeing an excellent quality product that respects the environment and the fiber itself. A soothing set of earthy heathers mixed with saturated jewel tones and rich, dark neutrals.
Owner Paola lived and worked in Tibet for many years. There she developed long-lasting relationships with nomadic herders in the high pastures of the Tibetan Plateau. Yak fiber is sourced directly from these herders, supporting their community and ancient way of life. Organic with no waste. Responsibility, traceability and sustainability.
