Yak– A Better Yarn than Cashmere

Yak sweater is popular in recent years.

Yaks are majestic animals that live on the highest plateau in the world, in the Himalayan regions. Yak fiber is 30%warmer than wool and 1.6 times more breathable than cashmere.

Each yak every year provides just 100g of fine, downy fiber.

Yaks are low-carbon emission animals with efficient digestive systems, emitting fewer greenhouse gases, including methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide. The nomadic lifestyle of yaks with frequent seasonable migration prevents overgrazing in one area. Their grass and shrubby vegetation diet also contributes to positive environmental impact and aligns with grassland conservation initiatives as yaks graze and feed gently without pulling up roots.
