Touching worsted-spun baby yak down is a unique experience: a precious fiber that creates a fabric different from anything else you have ever knitted before. Baby yak has a similar micron count around 17 microns to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons. Baby yak can become almost anything you can imagine: an heirloom shawl or your new favorite sweater.
According to the down color, mYak obtains three natural shades (chocolate, desert and oatmeal) which they dye in order to get our palette of soft colors that evoke the five elements of nature. Most yaks are of an intense shade, therefore light colors are very rare and even more precious.
mYak yarns are traditionally, sustainably and ethically grown in Tibet, and spun in Italy.
