Fair Trade Himalayan Yak Down Hat in Prussian

✿ Material: 100% Himalayan Yak Down

What is Yak Down?

Yak down is a luxury fiber relatively unknown to the fashion world. There are many benefits to using yak in knitwear. It is warmer than merino wool, softer and more durable than cashmere. This wool is from the company, Shokay who aims to source their yak fiber directly from Tibetan herders, enabling them to earn a sustainable living while reserving their traditional lifestyle. Like the cashmere of goats, yak hair is a secondary fiber, called down, grown each winter and shed in the spring. Each yak produces about 100g of fine downy fiber every year and this is how much weight of yarn I use to create one yak down beanie. The fiber is hand-combed from the yaks.

✿ Size: One-size-fits all. The unstretched circumference of the hat is 20 inches and will comfortably stretch to fit head circumference up to 24 inches.

✿ Status: Made to order. Please expect up to 2 weeks for your item to be made and prepared for shipment.

✿ Care Instructions: Hand wash using cold water and mild detergent. Lay flat to dry. With each wash your beanie will become softer and softer but holds its color well so the brighter color remain attractive for years.
