This incredibly soft and luxurious yarn is a balanced mix of yak and merino wool. Yak wool derives from the coat hairs of the yak, a bovine animal found mainly in the Himalayan region, Tibetan plateau, Malaysia and Central Asia. Yak wool is harvested by hand-combing when the yak hair sheds annually in the spring. The warmth and softness of yak wool is comparable to that of cashmere. It’s breathable, odor resistant, and light without compromising warmth. Yak is blended with merino for extra natural warmth and softness. It also enhances the beneficial properties of both fibers.
