Duo winter blanket yak hair fluff
For bone-chillingly cold winters. Duo blanket with yak hair fluff
Pure, natural yak hair fluff, one of the softest and finest natural hairs, is used to fill this unusually warm yet lightweight winter blanket. The light weight and exceptional ability to warm the fluff is due to its strong crimp, through which it stores a lot of heat-insulating air. In addition, due to the temperature and moisture regulating properties of the yak hair fluff, a very pleasant, dry sleeping climate is created under the quilt.
The yak hair quilt is also designed as a duo quilt: It consists of two individual quilts, which are sewn together all around the edge. This allows an insulating air chamber to form between the two quilts, which provides additional warmth. The quilt is therefore particularly suitable for people who freeze quickly and generally have a very high need for warmth, therefore prefer very warming, yet light blankets.
The cover is made up of a high-fiber density batiste, a very tightly woven, fine fabric for which organic cotton is used. The comfort quilting keeps the yak hair filling evenly distributed and allows the blanket to snuggle softly against the body. The winter blanket can not be washed, so it should be aired regularly to give it back freshness and puffy volume.
Yak hair. Natural cold shield
Yaks are the only species of cattle that have a multi-layered and particularly dense hair coat, it is light and soft, yet very resistant. The long top coat, the coarser woolly hair and finally the very fine, strongly curled undercoat protect the cattle native to the high plateaus of Central Asia from the harsh climate with bone-chilling cold and icy winds. During the natural change to the somewhat lighter summer coat, the yaks lose their dense winter coat. It is usually combed out by the herders, but occasionally the animals are shorn. Per yak, about only 300 to 500 g of the fine, fluffy undercoat can be obtained annually - and only this can be processed into yarn or fleece.
