No returns on sale items, please. Dye lots may vary.

Each skein of beautiful mYak (pronounced ‘my-yak’) Cashmere Medium is precious. Super-soft and made from 100% Tibetan cashmere, the smaller skeins of this worsted-weight are perfect for colorwork. And the colors are stunning! The prized cashmere fiber (hand-combed from the Tibetan goats’ downy undercoat) does not go through any depigmentation process—it’s naturally dyed by hand in small batches using traditional techniques that honor ‘nature’s story.’

Owner Paola won the hearts of our team at TNNA this year, telling us stories of the time she lived and worked in Tibet. There she developed long-lasting relationships with nomadic herders in the high pastures of the Tibetan Plateau. Yak fiber is sourced directly from these herders, supporting their community and ancient way of life. Organic with no wasteany fiber that is deemed unfit to be spun into yarn is either given back to the Tibetan herders so they can make pillow fills for prayer mats or is felted into blankets and other household products. Responsibility, traceability, and sustainability.
