What makes yak wool so special?
Yaks have evolved their fine super-wool in order survive and thrive in the high-altitude Himalayas. At 4,000-6,000m / 15,000ft-20,000ft altitude they face cold temperatures and the threat of adverse weather on a daily basis. Their fine layer of inner wool protects them and enables them to cope with the harsh winter months.
Our independent research shows that, weight-for-weight, pure yak wool fabric is 40% warmer, 66% more breathable and 17% faster at transporting moisture away from the skin than a pure merino wool fabric. That's why we use yak wool as a hero ingredient, and by combining both wools with other specialist eco-friendly ingredients we have maximised the effectiveness of our pieces.
