mYak Baby Camel

mYak camel fibre comes from North Eastern Tibet, in an arid part of the plateau close to the Gobi Desert.

The camels are tended by Tibetan communities that represent a very interesting mix of Tibetan and Mongolian cultures: they speak Amdo, one of the three main Tibetan dialects and they live in yurts, the typical Mongolian tent.

Bactrian Camel is a marvelous animal able to thrive in extreme climatic conditions. It’s used to transport family belongings during transhumance and it produces a very rich milk and a gorgeous fiber.

Camel fibre is very soft as well as warm. For centuries camel fibre was regarded as one of the most noble fibres in the world.

mYak Camel yarn is sourced on the Tibetan Plateau and spun in Italy which enhances the features of this precious material. The yarn has a very luxurious touch combined with a unique mix of both strength and softness.
