WHY IS THE YAK FIBER BETTER THAN MERINO?
Yak fiber is up to 40% warmer than merino allowing you to wear lighter, more comfortable clothing without feeling the cold, even in the most extreme winter conditions.
65% MORE BREATHABLE
Water vapour permeability that is 65% greater than merino means that water and sweat are transported through the fibers and away from your body, keeping you feeling dry.
Yak fiber binds to odor-causing bacteria neutralizing them and stopping you from smelling, so you can wear the same item for days or weeks at a time.
Yak fiber regulates your temperature by absorbing and losing moisture and heat when it is hot or cold, keeping your skin at the right temperature.
Yak wool absorbs UV radiation creating a natural physical and chemical barrier between you and the harsh outdoor environment.
Yak fiber has the ability to conduct charge away, giving you the feeling of complete freedom and comfort.
