The Best Women’s Yak Wool Clothing

Yak down is a very warm fiber that’s also lightweight and soft. It’s a more affordable alternative to the rare qiviut (musk ox down).

Yaks are primarily raised by nomadic Tibetan and Mongolian families. Their wool is combed once per year in the springtime.

Some advantages of yak wool:

  • Yak wool is 66% more breathable and 40% warmer than merino, weight for weight
  • Feels soft like cashmere — fibers average 18 microns (superfine)
  • Wicks moisture efficiently and allows sweat vapor to escape from your skin, so you won’t overheat or feel clammy
  • Naturally anti-bacterial — doesn’t hold odor

The major producers of yak wool clothing are: Khunu and Handcombed.
