100% yak down

Wol Verhalen's yak wool is composed exclusively of yak down sourced from the Khangai Mountain Breeders Cooperative, an eco-responsible and fair-trade cooperative established in Mongolia with the support of Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (AVSF).

The yaks are combed in the spring by the Mongol breeders. After sorting, just under 100 g of down per animal per year is extracted. It is then converted into yarn in a spinning mill in France.

This three-ply yarn still has its natural grey/brown colour, has not been bleached and has not undergone any additional chemical treatments. 100% natural! It feels wonderful and is very warm. 

In my Dye Studio, I dye the yak wool with acid dyes. The colours are intense and very rich. The natural colour of the yak down shines through in a subtle way, creating a nice heathered effect.
 

1 hank of 100 g and contains about 400 metres of yarn

It is a fingering weight and woolen spun

Recommended needle thickness: 2.5 - 3.5

The stitch ratio is 30 stitches x 38 rows = 10 x 10 cm 

Hand-wash the yak wool in cold water and you will notice that it will get softer with each wash.

For a ladies' sweater in size 40, you will need about 4 hanks
