Yak is an animal that lives high in Himalayan mountains and is accustomed extremely low temperatures. The down layer of wool that is soft and next to the skin is brushed out each spring and is then made into yarn for weaving. It is soft like the high altitude goats that give us cashmere and keeps you very warm. Yaks live at a staggering 13.000 to 16,500 ft. above sea level.
It can also be used as a living cloth, bed cover, beach towel, picnic blanket, as a scarf in winter, poncho or as traditional as a prayer blanket and both men and women can use its a unisex scarf.
With your purchase you support small craft businesses that still work in a very traditional way.
