Sounds strange, but feels incredible! The downy fiber harvested from Mongolian yaks provides a unique mix of softness and durability. Yaks have different layers in their wool coats, much like goats. ULA + LIA only uses the finest, softest down layer that 1-3 year old yaks produce in the middle of bitter winters. The guard hairs that remain after the brushing process are separated from the downy ‘yak cashmere’ before being spun into yarn.

Due to their unique habitat of high elevations and bitterly cold temperatures, yak wool is very fine and soft, but also comprised of abnormally long and durable fibers. Like merino wool, yak wool is also finding its way into base layers due to its strength, warmth, and natural wicking properties.

Mix and Match with other ULA+LIA Fibers and Colors!

Gauge and care is consistent across all of our fibers,
so feel free to combine any of our yarn to find the perfect color pairing.

100% Baby Yak Wool

Always procured from free-range animals raised by traditional herders in the Mongolian countryside.

I love this yarn, in this weight. I’m knitting a lace cardigan, and it has a light halo while still maintaining beautiful stitch definition. Incredibly soft and durable! It feels more like a heavy DK/light worsted yarn, and character changes with needle size—I’m using a US size 6, getting 20 stitches per 4 inches and am happy with the character of the fabric. I am sure I could easily go up a few needles sizes and have a gorgeous, shimmery, fluid shawl if I wanted. Wonderful!

Lovely color

I haven't knit this up yet - can't wait to see it washed and blocked as a sweater
