ULTRA Warm. At -35℃ and lower, you will be surprised finding yourself warm, wearing a sweater/hat/socks knitted of Tibetan Yak wool. Tibetan Yaks' undercoat is a precious fiber similar to Mongolian Cashmere. A premium quality Yak fiber micron count is between 15 and 17 microns. It is velvety and incredibly soft. The yaks shed their coats and normally it is gathered from the ground. The extremely fine yak's belly hair is usually combed out by hand, and then spun into yarn. Each yak produces about 100 gr of down (undercoat) fiber per year. China's Qinhai, Sichuan and Gansu Provinces are the major producers of the commercialized yak. Lotus Tibetan Yak is a precious, pure, super soft, plied yak wool in Natural Brown. It is undyed, and is suitable for hand and machine knitting.
Garment Care: hand wash with woolwash "no rinse" or baby shampoo. Lay flat to dry, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight.
