mYak Cashmere

mYak Fingering 100% cashmere. 
Wool carded. Machine spun in natural yarn colours. Not bleached.
This fibre is directly from the Tibetan Plateau and the herders of cashmere goats. Tibetan nomads’ fashion sense represents an original synthesis between tradition and modernity. The typical clothes with undyed fiber colors are decorated with bright splashes of colors that create surprising contrasts.

These yarns are been dyed with all natural pigments. Using natural dyes allows us to create beautiful colors while choosing a sustainable and eco friendly method that honors our history with color and textiles. Much thought and care has been put into the colors and dyes chosen: Madder Root, Cochineal, Logwood, Indago, Weld and Osage Orange. These dyes are honored for their depth of shade and color fastness while maintaining the soft and of our yarn.
