Our five collections are founded on the little known miracle properties of yak wool, so they keep you warm in cool weather and prevent you from overheating in warm weather. Each piece is fantastically soft, breathable, moisture wicking, naturally odour-resistant and fast drying. Our product design team have created technical blends to further enhance yak wool’s properties by making use of merino wool and specialist fabrics such as DuPont™ Sorona®, Polartec® Alpha® and Coolmax® Eco.
The Neema Collection
Lightweight Base and Activewear
The Neema Collection is a true four season collection. Drawing on yak wool’s uniquely versatile nature, we have designed Neema as a collection of body-fit summer activewear or as lightweight base layers for year-round activities. With a super-soft, luxurious feel, you’ll find yourself reaching for a Neema as a standalone top for a summer hike, and again in the winter under a Stratam or Yardang mid layer.
We wanted to build the unique properties of yak wool into a lighter weight collection, bringing its unrivalled comfort to your everyday adventures.
After years of research and development we arrived at an intimate blend of 20% yak wool with 40% merino and 40% recycled Coolmax® Eco - the latter is a high performance fibre with excellent wicking and quick dry properties.

The Shola Collection
Signature base layers
The collection that launched us. Shola is the world’s first (and still the only) performance collection made with 100% yak wool. This is the collection that proved that yak has unique performance properties that make it ideal for outdoor pursuits great and small. Soft like cashmere, warmer and more breathable than merino, moisture wicking, odour resistant, and with outstanding warmth-for-weight, Hima-Layer™ Shola has a natural stretch that moves with the body, making it your ideal first layer for outdoor adventures.
There will be no restocks of the Shola Collection. Available while stocks last.

The Stratam Collection
Technical mid layers for everyday adventures
Created to layer over our base layer collections, the Stratam Collection has been designed for warmth and comfort and offers exceptional breathability and moisture management.
The Hima-Layer™ Stratam fabric is made with a combination of two yarns. On the inside the 100% yak wool yarn knitted in a terry loop construction traps air for warmth and provides excellent wicking properties. On the outside, we’ve used biodegradable DuPont™ Sorona®, a biopolymer yarn made from corn starch to create a smooth surface offering further protection from the elements.
Tested in the polar regions and in mountain ranges around the world, the Stratam Collection is proven in extreme conditions, but its versatility and understated elegance make it perfect for everyday use, running errands or post workout.

The Yardang Collection
Lightweight supercharged merino mid-layers
Yak wool has exceptional properties highly suitable to having fun outdoors, so we have supercharged it with a known favourite: merino.
Merino and yak are the perfect partners. Merino is a natural fibre, is easy to spin, knit and dye into beautiful colours.
What is most exciting to us is that these traits together increase our scope to be ever more creative to bring the secret benefits of yak wool to adventurers great and small the world over.

The Yushu Collection
Our Next-Generation Base Layers
We bring you our next generation of base layer fabric that takes the best of yak and combines it with another wool, merino. Complex environmental factors affect the yaks that supply us on the frontline, making it harder for the Tibetan nomads to supply us with the wool that we need.
The result is a fabric that is super-soft next to the skin, that provides yak wool’s exceptional Himalayan-born warmth and has merino’s added resilience for improved durability.
Our Hima-Layer™ Yushu fabric is knitted with 60% premium yak wool with 40% superfine merino and weighs 240gsm.
All styles come in black and feature panels of corespun merino textile (a nylon yarn wrapped in merino) to increase durability in high-wear areas such as the crotch and the under-arm. All seams are crafted with overlock and triple step zig-zag stitching ensuring a completely flat yet ultra-strong finish.
Each item is finished at the cuff with a section of woven tape inspired by the colours of the Himalayan prayer flags, making your Yushu unique to you.
