MONGOLIA 5 is a delicate blend of yak down and fleece of merino sheep. The yak down originates from the "Khangai Mountains Breeders Cooperative", an eco-responsible and fair trade local organisation set up by Fonty in Mongolia with the technical support of AVSF (Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders). The yaks are combed in the spring by Mongolian herders, a little less than 100g of down per animal per year are harvested.
The combination of unbleached white merino and yak results in a mottled yarn with incredible colors and reflections. This 5-ply yarn, in addition to its exceptional colors and feel, is particularly warm and soft.
