Nuraxi Yak
Yak wool, also known as Khullu (the under-layer), is an astonishing fiber when spun. The dense, supple feel is akin to cashmere and known for its warmth. Some even claim that yak is warmer than merino wool … consider the merino sheep grazing around 3,000 feet, while yaks thrive at roughly 16,000 feet.

Yaks have supplied warmth, food, and shelter to the nomadic herders of the Himalayan plateau for thousands of years. Each spring the yaks naturally shed their fine, silky winter khullu which herders gather. If herders didn’t gather this wool, it would simply shed naturally, thus no harm is done to this generous animal.

The fiber is collected by hand, cleaned, hand spun and woven locally into the incredibly luxurious wraps we bring to you.
