De-Haired Yak Top

FA-302

Typically Ships In:
1-3 Days

A very soft, de-haired top made from the undercoat of the yak. Reminiscent of quiviut, although not as fine. 

Yak fiber is soft and smooth with wonderful hand. It is combed or shed from the yak and then dehaired. The result is a splendid downy fiber similar to that of the camel. Many hand spinners are afraid of the relatively short staple length but because of the great crimp, it is actually quite easy to spin. It makes a terrific lofty, woolen spun yarn.

Specifications:

  • Breed: Yak
  • Weight: 100g
  • Staple Length: 1.5 inches
  • Micron Average: 17 - 19
