Product Description
Yaks are pretty incredible creatures. To survive high in the mountains, where temperatures dip to 40 below, they’ve developed long, coarse hair and a soft down undercoat for extra insulation ... Read More

Hi Everyone! We’re so excited to announce this new drop in partnership with Peak to Plateau: The Yakino sweater and accompanying beanies and neckwarmers. All are made from the same yarns, a new blend of 50% yak wool and 50% merino wool, what we're calling yakino. We’ve been working with Peak to Plateau for months now to develop the concept of a yak wool sweater than offers the highest technical performance in wool and looks great for around town. Peak to Plateau founder Stefan Warnaar has been working with Tibetan families mostly in the Quinghai region of the Tibetan Plateau which is around 3000m+ high in elevation, where the yaks withstand harsh conditions like sleet and snow. Fiber collection happens once a year in the region in late Spring/early Summer, making securing these yarns challenging. Once collected, the yarns are dehaired to separate the coarse fibers from the finer fibers, which only produces about 15% usable fibers from the original harvest.  What makes yak wool great as compared to merino is that it’s up to 40% warmer, 66% more breathable, 17% faster at pulling water away from your skin, softer and just as strong at wicking and odor resistance. These are offered in unisex sizing, so women will want to size down one size when purchasing. Thanks!

Where can I find care instructions for the sweater? My package didn't seem to come with instructions.

There is a tag inside the left side seam of the main body. The care instructions are to hand wash or to use the cool delicate cycle, wash inside out, use mild soap (Woolite for example), do not wring out, do not use bleach or a fabric softener, do not dry clean and do not tumble dry.

Yak-merino? Yippee! Color and design? Hideous 46" chest =XXL? In what universe? Nope, I'll just knit my own, thank you.

Just got mine. Sizing is really odd. I wear S everything but this is like an M for someone 5" taller than I am. Makes me wonder if we're paying for a botched product run being marketed as an exclusive.

Thanks Duncan but the cut of these is so weird that i don't really trust the XS is the right size either. There is something very off about these. I'm just going to have the sweater tailored for $15 locally.

Somebody already asked where is this made and didn't got an answer. I guess when the product sells they get too arrogant to answer such questions.
