Yak/Alpaca Beanie or Scarf
Fluffy, ultra light and wonderfully warm.
Knitted accessories made from precious baby-yak and baby–alpaca wool.
Compared to this yarn, normal virgin wool seems almost rough and scratchy. Both rare yarns are combed out from the delicate downy coats of the animals, and selected according to strict quality criteria.
Despite its softness, the yarn is surprisingly resilient.
In order to brave the extreme weather conditions of the Tibetan plateaus and the South American Andes, nature has equipped both species with an extremely resistant furry coat. The rare luxury yarn is much more resistant to abrasion and pilling than comparable soft yarns.
Fair production from Germany: meinfrollein® donates 5 Euro per set to the Kinderzukunft foundation (charitable foundation for children).
The young German label from Hesse combines style and charity. A small Fairtrade doll as brand ambassador adorns each accessory.
