The cattle-like but peculiar yaks graze in the highest mountain ranges in ecological niches, which are not accessible to other types of animals. Extremely rare among the 600,000 yaks are the grey animals, which can only be found in Mongolia.

The nomadic herder families comb out the yak hair in spring in traditional ways manually and without harm for the animals. They obtain from each animal only two handful of its fine under hair, which protects the animal from 40 degrees celsisu cold in winter and up to 40 degrees Celsius heat in summer.

Important natural properties of yak hair are its insulation ability and its resistance to moisture and odours. This reduces the need for washing and makes yak hair ideal for durable outdoor and active wear.
