The Best Yak Wool Socks

Yak down is a very warm fiber that’s ideal for sock-making. It doesn’t hold odor and it wicks moisture efficiently.

Yak wool also is lightweight and soft — the hairs average around 18 microns which is considered “superfine” in the world industry.

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