Just launched this October!
Tibetan Cloud is a Sport/Light DK weight of 100% Tibetan sheep wool, ethically sourced and traceable back to the flock.
It comes exclusively from an ancient breed of Tibetan sheep that roam freely on the grassland of the Tibetan Plateau at an altitude of over 4000 metres.
Thanks to a careful selecting and dehairing process, Tibetan Cloud is the result of using the finest and softest heart of that wool, creating a yarn that is exceptionally light, bouncy and soft - floating across your hands like a cloud that floats across the Tibetan sky.
This unique product has characteristics closer to those of fine fibres like cashmere and baby yak than to wool - not at all scratchy!
It is a pleasure to knit with as it is to wear.
As an added bonus, it has beautiful stitch definition.
Like with mYak's Baby Yak and Tibetan Cashmere, thier aim is to give this thousands of years old nomadic lifestyle an opportunity to thrive and prosper in uncertain times.
mYak seeks to promote what the nomads have been producing since time immemorial while adding value by having the fibre spun and dyed in Biella, in the foothills of the Italian Alps, the cradle of the most ancient and prestigious Italian textile excellence.
