"Warmer than Merino, as soft as cashmere and as strong as camel"
Yak wool is being dubbed as the new cashmere. However, unlike cashmere goats that are partly responsible for the degradation of marginal land in the Himalayas due to the unprecedented demand of cashmere in recent years, Yaks are indigenous to the region, and despite their size do not cause the damage that goats do. Once you experience the cosiness of a Yak shawl you won't look back. It really is a winter must!
