Product propertiesYak wool is our warmest, fluffiest and highest quality raw material. Since the wool is spun from the fine underhair of yaks, the products have a similar wearing comfort as cashmere.
Durability & Care In general, woolen textiles should be washed less frequently than synthetic or cotton products - it often helps to air them out. You can wash them carefully by hand in lukewarm water without any problems. If necessary, normal shampoo can be used as a detergent. To dry them, it is best to place them between two towels and gently squeeze them. Then let them dry lying down, so that they do not wear out. Under no circumstances should you wring out the products or put them in the dryer.
How do yaks live in Mongolia?
Yaks love rocky plateaus and cold temperatures. With their dense shaggy body hair, they stay warm even in Mongolian winter temperatures as low as -40°C. Mongolia has about 1 million yaks in a total of 13 provinces. This gives Mongolia the second largest yak population in the world after China. Yaks are found in the mountainous areas of the Gobi Desert such as Bayankhongor, Zavkhan and Gobi-Altai provinces. The wild cattle were domesticated only about 3,000 years ago and to this day they can be very temperamental despite their laziness.
How do nomads and yaks live together?
The grazing livestock play an important role in the life of the nomadic population - not only in Mongolia, but in all of Central Asia. Their fur, fat and meat are an important source of livelihood and sources of income for nomads. But most of all they are used for riding and pack animals. In the process, yaks shoulder the yurts, water tank or fuel for their nomadic herders across the vast Mongolian landscape.
