Cable Knit Women’s Yak Wool Sweater
"Bella figura" the Natural Way.
The sweater is knitted on hand knitting machines in Italy. He is "fully fashioned" in perfection: The elaborate cable pattern and the ribs vary in size depending on the size, so the fitted pullover sits close to the body. He is made of unbleached wool from the Baby Yak. Thanks to the skin-friendly properties of this wool, the narrow shawl collar fits snugly and comfortably on the neck.
Yakhaar: Light, warm and soft.
The light, extremely soft and warming hair of yaks is ideal for making comfortable clothing. Yaks are native to Central Asia and are kept there on the high plateaus – at up to 5,000 meters altitude. Against the extreme climatic conditions between burning sun during the day and freezing cold at night, the animals are protected by an insulating hair fleece with dense under hair and very long upper hair. Xarns can only be spun out of the under hair. The yaks are combed out once a year at the end of the long winter. The underhair is spun into yarns with a fiber fineness of 18 to 20 microns. Baby Yak is the finest hair quality.
