Info

The fibre is naturally brown to fawn in colour. Lighter colours than this must be produced by bleaching the fibre, which is a little detrimental to its handle. The soft fine under hair is the desirable element of this animal’s coat and is removed commercially by dehairing, which separates the soft under hair from the coarse outer hair, known as guard-hair.

The fibre has never really appeared in full scale production of any substance. We are not sure why, but it is maybe to do with the fibres positioning, in relation to other fibres. Or maybe the name! This should not deter from experimenting with this fibre, which is, in our opinion undervalued.

Fibre: Yak
Microns: 17-19microns

(all measurements are approximate)

Please Note: Colours may vary slightly from batch to batch due to the nature of natural fibre. We have taken every step to represent the colours correctly, but we do recommend ordering a sample for clarity as colours can change depending on your screen settings.

If ordering tops, roving or jumbo yarn, all quantities will be sent in a continual length (up to 10kg) unless otherwise stated or requested.
