Wie gut, dass die Wolle so heißt, wie sie sich strickt und anfühlt! Schon beim Stricken macht sie viel Spaß, aber wenn ihr sie erst einmal gewaschen habt, entfalten sich ihre ganzen Vorzüge: weich und warm und kuschelig.

"Tibetan Cloud is a Sport/ Light DK weight of 100% Tibetan sheep wool, ethically sourced and traceable back to the flock. It comes exclusively from an ancient breed of Tibetan sheep that roam freely on the grassland of the Tibetan Plateau at an altitude of over 4000 mt.
This unique product has characteristics closer to fine fibers like cashmere and baby yak than to wool, not at all scratchy. It is a pleasure to knit with as it is to wear. As an added bonus, it has a beautiful stitch definition.
Out of deep respect for animal welfare, nomads shear the sheep by hand in the traditional way that has been used for centuries. The wool is collected following the natural life rhythms of the animals and the people who raise them. The Tibetan sheep are a very strong breed that has adapted to pretty rough environmental conditions. They can also be found in semi – desertic area and we have chosen one of these poorer areas for the sourcing of this collection to bring a better income to these communities. Like with our Baby Yak and Tibetan Cashmere, our aim is to give this thousand of years old nomadic lifestyle an opportunity to thrive and prosper in uncertain modern times. We seek to promote what the nomads have been producing since time immemorial while adding value by having the fiber spun and dyed in Biella, at the foothills of the Italian Alps, the cradle of most ancient and prestigious Italian textile excellence."
Und was soll ich sagen? Auch hier: warm und weich und kuschelig durch 100% Baby Yak.

Und was sagt Myak über ihre Wolle?
"Baby yak is the bedrock of our company. Touching worsted-spun baby yak down is a unique experience: a precious fiber that creates a fabric different from anything else you have ever knitted before. Worsted-spun baby yak down yarn is a luxury fiber that will yield a fabric unlike anything you have knit before. Baby yak has a similar micron count around 17 microns to cashmere. It is warm and lustrous, lightweight and breathable, making it perfect through the seasons.
Our baby yak colors are soft, heathered, earth tones combined with dark neutrals and few saturated rich ones. Most yaks are of darker shade, and thus light colors are very rare and even more precious. Warmer than wool, and as soft as cashmere, our 100% baby yak is the right choice if you are looking for a unique, ethically sourced fiber good for you, for the environment and for the community that produce it.
We only dye on the natural basis, no bleaching or decoloring. Each color will vary from season to season depending on the shade of the natural fibers, making it at times darker and at times lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fibers and therefore the shade of the sample you see photographed here, might not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS."
