The Yak freely follows the normadic families high up on the Mongolian steppe north of the Himalayas. Here it is very windy and cold. Down to -60"F. the wool is collected at the onset of summer by the herders.
The Yak wool is warmer than wool, more breathable than cashmere and have a smooth, fine texture. It also has anti-bacterial and odor resistant qualities.

To prevent pilling machine wash. Use a wool cycle and non-biological detergent. (Biological detergents contain enzymes which can damage hair. Yak wool is actually a hair not a wool. Hand washing is also an option with very lightweight items however be careful not to kneed the garment like dough, just stir in the warm water and let it soak.
