What makes a yarn irresistible? In our experience the reason people choose a yarn is because they are drawn to how it feels to the touch, and not less important, where and how it is sourced.
We are committed to producing natural yarns with a sustainable supply chain that is socially, ethically and environmentally responsible. All environmental, animal health and workplace practices are of a high standard from the farm to the finished yarn.
Tibetan is a blend of merino ultrafine and yak wool. Our merino wool is, of course, mulesing-free and comes from Argentina, Patagonia. Tibetan is made with merino ultrafine which has a fineness of 17 microns. It is GOTS certified, which means that the farming process is organic and no toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemicals are used in its manufacturing. Tibetan’s noble yak wool component has its origins in Mongolia. with a fineness of approx. 16 microns.
The result is a luxurious yarn that is incredibly light, soft, gentle to the skin and very breathable. It is a yarn that is sure to inspire you to knit a variety of different garments and accessories from soft and cuddly hats, handwarmers, ponchos, and scarves to cardigans and pullovers; the possibilities are endless and the creativity is all yours!
We recommend washing your knitwear made with Tibetan by hand in lukewarm water with a mild wool detergent. Dry flat, preferably on a terry towel, to keep its shape.
Please do not dry it on a heat source or in the sun! Read more about wool care in our blogpost HERE
