    Baby Yak Medium

    $32.00

    The raw material is one of the rarest and most refined in the world—the soft undercoat of baby yaks and of Tibetan cashmere goats, which graze in the wild or semi-wild on the high altitude pastures of the Tibetan Plateau.

    How does one treat this natural wonder? With the utmost respect for its natural origin and the artisanal skills involved in its processing. Starting with the pastures, which are controlled as to avoid animal overcrowding, to the collection of the down which is done through combing and not shearing.

    No depigmentation and high-quality manufacturing, with carded spinning, reserved for the world’s most precious yarns.

    mYak aims to combine sustainability, social responsibility, quality, and technology to create a unique experience that will change your way of thinking, creating, and knitting.

    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 to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons. Versatile baby yak can become almost anything: an heirloom shawl or your new favorite sweater.

    According to the down color, mYak obtain's three natural shades (chocolate, desert and oatmeal) which they dye in order to get a 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.

    The Legendary Silk Road crossed Tibet. mYak wanted to pay homage to two Asian treasures.

    mYak's 50% baby yak, 50% silk light fingering-weight blend has all of the best qualities of baby yak with the gorgeous sheen and drape of silk. We love the way these two fibers blend together to make a very special luxury yarn. It will bloom and drape, slink and shine. The result is a soft and light fabric perfect for your favorite warm weather garments and accessories. The fabric is strong enough to maintain your preferred cable and also flexible enough to hold its shape in lace. With colors inspired by the Tibetan Plateau, you are sure to find the right shade for your project.
