How we started
10 years ago we stumbled upon one of Earth’s finest natural materials, Yak Wool. We were astonished to find that its miracle properties were ideal for outdoor adventures. Driven by a desire to protect the people and the mountains we love, we now develop technical and timeless activewear fit for every adventure.
kora IN THE NEWS
"... regulated my temperature on cold days, and it’s stretchy enough to be comfortable for all-day wear or even sleeping. After I first got my pair, I don’t think I changed out of them for three days"
"This yak-wool base layer has a warmth-to-weight ratio that’s better than anything else we’ve tested. It’s exceedingly soft and comfortable, too, making it the first piece we grab when we’re layering for cool-weather rides.”
"Exceptional. Cut to an athletic fit, this 100 percent yak wool layer is warm, quick drying, and comfortable.”
"yak wool is warmer and more breathable than Merino, and is also lighter and softer—and so far I think they're right”
"We loved the Shola 230 Leggings and Azog Jersey, which offer warmth, breathability, and moisture-wicking, odor-resistant, itch-free insulation for all our cold-weather outdoor shenanigans."
"It’s a wonderfully warm base layer in extreme cold, yet exceptionally breathable with efficient moisture-wicking."

Responsibly Sourced in the Himalayas
In the Himalayas, Yak Wool trade can make an important difference in nomadic herders’ lives. We’re proud to support their hard work by purchasing their materials in bulk, at market price. We make regular visits and have built strong ties directly with the people that supply the wool we use to make our clothing.
Kora ( སྐོར་ར) is the Tibetan word for “circumambulation” or “revolution”. A kora is both a pilgrimage and a meditative practice in Tibetan Buddhism, and is performed by circumambulating a sacred site - often a mountain.
