mYAK - BABY YAK & CASHMERE

Fantastisk og ganske sjeldent 100% bebiYak- og 100% cashmere garn fra Tibet!

mYak ble dannet av en italiensk sosialarbeider og en veterinær som levde og arbeidet blandt nomadene på det Tibetanske Platå i mer enn 20 år. Idag velges kun den beste ullen i samarbeid med gjetere i Tibet. Ullen fraktes til Italia hvor det spinnes til strikkegarn av meget høy-kvalitet. mYak garn kommer i naturlige farger og det brukes hverken klor eller kjemikalier. Dette er et garnmerke med meget høy etisk profil som satser på en bærekraftig virksomhet som støtter lokalsamfunnet og nomadene, samt bidrar til å opprettholde en sårbar kultur i Tibet.

mYak

BORN IN TIBET - CRAFTED IN ITALY

A Company on a Mission.

mYak was born of more than twenty years living and working with the nomadic herders of the Tibetan Plateau. Together we’re building more than a business. We’re building a future for one of the world’s most ancient ways of life.

OUR VISION

Ethically Sourced. Expertly Crafted.

We believe in responsibility, traceability and sustainability. We source our wool directly from nomadic Tibetan herders, contributing to the well-being of the local community. Our fiber is hand-combed from the undercoat of baby yaks and cashmere goats with no harm to the animal.

We believe sustainability means respect for diverse cultures and ways of life, adding value to local resources and traditions while protecting their origins, and crafting products meant to last not for a season, but for generations. Our activities are equally imbued with care for people, animals and the environment as well as for the social and ethical values that characterize our entire chain.

Uniquely Soft

Our yarns are spun from the finest fibers from the soft undercoats of baby yaks and cashmere goats raised in the high pastures of the Tibetan Plateau. Warmer than lambswool and as fine as cashmere, this soft undercoat keeps the animals warm even as winter temperatures plunge below -40º.

Naturally Strong

Yak wool is one of the world’s strongest natural fibers, but spinning such fine fiber requires remarkable skill. Our full range of yarns, textiles, and personal and home accessories are spun and woven by the expert craftsmen of Italy’s finest mills, guaranteeing that all of our products will last generations.
