【Brand Story】

mYak from Italy is a beautiful story of an Italian veterinarian who has worked and lived with Tibetans on the Qingkang Tibetan Plateau for many years.

Andrea, a former veterinarian, was treating a sick baby yak a few years ago when she discovered that the inner coat of this unique and beautiful creature is so fine and soft!

In order to introduce this special breed to the world, he and his partner Paola have teamed up with local herders to create cooperatives that follow the traditional nomadic herding patterns of Tibetan herders to raise yaks and Tibetan sheep, establish a sustainable production chain of mYak wire, and make hand-woven yarn from precious yak and Tibetan sheep fibers with the help of the strong foundation of the Italian textile industry.

In order not to destroy the fragile plateau grassland ecology, they follow the traditional and ancient herding methods of nomads to raise yaks and Tibetan sheep, and insist on hand-combing the way to collect the fibers of yak and Tibetan sheep that begin to naturally dehaire after winter, and then clean them by hand, while separating the coarser hair from the fine plush at the bottom.

In this process, only about 30% of the yak plush can be used to make mYak wire, and the remaining 70% is used by Tibetans to make warm household needs such as tents or mattresses.

Yak hair is a short fiber, mYak specially combed the too short fiber, keep the longer part, so mYak's yak thread has a fineness comparable to cashmere (about 17 microns), insisting on not bleaching, no decolorization, but according to the natural background color of yak wool (chocolate color, oatmeal and desert color) are sorted and then dyed so that the filaments still retain the hue of natural fibers.
