Lighter than virgin wool. Almost as soft as cashmere. And far more resilient than both.
Rare yak wool, completely natural and free of chemicals.
Unlike those rough, itchy virgin wool winter pullovers, this pullover is spun from fluffy soft yak wool and a precious rarity indeed. The wool is taken from young yaks living on the high plateaus of Tibet. This unique breed of cattle grazes there at heights ranging between 4,000 and 6,000 metres (13,000 to nearly 20,000 feet) above sea level. Only in such icy regions do the animals develop their particularly thick, dense coat.
Warm and light as a feather. Only the long-fibred undercoat is used.
It is gently combed out by hand and spun into a fine yarn. Despite its delicacy, yak wool is also extremely hardwearing so your pullover will resist wear and pilling. And best of all, you can wash it in the washing machine which will make it even softer and cuddlier.
No added dyes to spoil your enjoyment.
The versatile grey-brown is the original colour of the yak hair and completely natural.
Casual straight shape with rounded neckline and ribbing. Length in size 42/44: 70cm (27.5″). 100% yak. Hand wash only. Exclusive to Fashion Classics.
