This natural undyed yarn is a blend of 50% yak down and 50% superfine merino sheep wool (19 microns). Yak down is harvested by breeders in Mongolia, members of the "Khangai Mountains Breeders Cooperative", an eco-responsible and fair trade organisation set up by Fonty with the technical support of the AVSF association (Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Limits).
Merino wool is off-white while yak down is gray, brown or dark brown. Mixing 3 strands in different proportions creates lovely natural colors.
URGA is warm and resistant yarn with an exceptional soft feel.
