Naturally, Yak Sweater
A yarn especially spun for us by an Italian heritage mill, from the finest down of 100% premium quality yak wool.
For the longest time I associated yak with a rough, sheepswool-like feel. But this was before I discovered this yarn from this mill in 2017, presented in their catalogue as a blend with a lambswool thread, for a color detail. We have asked the mill to produce it for us in 100% yak for a total sensorial experience.
It is a soul yarn for me. Besides knowing is truly sustainable and cruelty-free (the yak sheds its wool annually), and besides its amazing properties of being both thermoregulating and odor-neutralising, it has an absolute wellness effect with its softness and natural earthy tones.
I choose a classic French shoulder, crew-neck-sweater shape, but in a chunky, thick structure that accentuates these details.
Hand wash in lukewarm water with proper, mild detergent for natural fibres – please read about ”CARE GUIDE” instructions here, or contact us for more information.
For customized sizing, please discover our BUY BESPOKE section. Below are the parameters for our regular sizes for this product. As we work with natural yarns, and many colours, differences in sizing may occur.
Whilst the programming and the knitting are controlled by mathematics and technology, the washing, drying, linking, steaming and measuring phase of our products are done manually, by our employees. Our products are measured on our steaming table, on an angled , flat surface. Even in this setting the industry allows for a plus/ minus 2cm difference for sizing parameter. We present this information to raise more awareness about what is normal for quality knitwear from natural yarns, that have no plastic, and no chemical treatment that removes their natural elasticity and particularities.
