Who is MYAK Tibetan Fibers?
Myak has been living and working with the nomadic herders of the Tibetan Plateau for more than twenty years, respecting their traditions and sharing their way of life and work. More than simply purchasing the fiber obtained from the combing of the baby yaks and the cashmere goats they are contributing towards the future of a nomadic population representing one of the most ancient in the world.
Yarn made from Baby YAk and Tibetan Cashmere
The raw material is one of the rarest and most refined in the world—the soft undercoat of baby yaks and of Tibetan cashmere goats, which graze in the wild or semi-wild on the high altitude pastures of the Tibetan Plateau.
Treated with the utmost respect for its natural origin and artisanal skills involved in its processing. Pastures are controlled to avoid animal overcrowding and down is collected through combing and not shearing. No depigmentation and high-quality manufacturing, with carded spinning, reserved for the world’s most precious yarns.
