Our fiber are amongst the rarest and most refined in the world—from the soft undercoat of baby yaks and of Tibetan cashmere goats, to the heart of the wool of an ancient breed of Tibetan sheep grazing on the high altitude pastures of the Tibetan Plateau. How does one treat this natural wonder? With the utmost respect for its natural origin and the artisanal skills involved in its processing. Starting with the pastures, which are controlled as to avoid animal overcrowding, to the collection of the down which is done through combing and not shearing.
No depigmentation and high-quality manufacturing, with carded spinning, reserved for the world’s most precious yarns.
We aim to combine sustainability, social responsibility, quality, and technology to create a unique experience that will change your way of thinking, creating, and knitting.
We are thrilled to introduce Ra-ku -Fiocco di Cashmere, the new addition to our line of Tibetan Fibers.
Ra-ku is a Cashmere with a character you haven’t experienced before.
Our Tibetan Cashmere is a fiber over 36 mm long and with a gauge below 14.5 microns, characteristics that make it a yarn of absolute excellence. The yarn is spun in an artisanal mill in Italy with the perfect balance of ease to allow the yarn to bloom while still securing the fibers.
The wool obtained from an ancient breed of Tibetan sheep has been used for centuries to weave magnificent rugs, and traditional clothing, but it was considered unsuitable for more refined uses. Until now… Thanks to a careful selection and dehairing process, Tibetan Cloud is the result of using the finest and softest heart of that wool, creating a yarn that is exceptionally light, bouncy and soft – sliding across your hands as cloud that float across the Tibetan sky. We are so proud to be the first to bring this wool in the hands of knitters and crocheters around the world.
Baby yak is the bedrock of our company. Worsted-spun baby yak down is a luxury fiber that will yield a yarn unlike anything you have knitted with before.
Baby yak has a similar micron count—around 17 microns—to cashmere.
We are working hard to preserve the natural properties of this unique fiber and therefore skip the decoloring process.
We obtain three natural shades of down color (chocolate, desert and oatmeal), which we use as basis for our palette that evoke the five elements of nature.
The Legendary Silk Road crossed Tibet. We wanted to pay homage to two Asian treasures.
Our 50% baby yak, 50% silk light fingering-weight blend has all of the best qualities of baby yak with the gorgeous sheen and drape of silk. We love the way these two fibers blend together to make a very special luxury yarn. It will bloom and drape, slink and shine. The result is a soft and light fabric perfect for your favorite warm weather garments and accessories. The fabric is strong enough to maintain your preferred cable and also flexible enough to hold its shape in lace. With colors inspired by the Tibetan Plateau, you are sure to find the right shade for your project.
