Heritage Yak Wool

Heritage Khullu Sweater

Heritage is what's passed down; preserving what we learn, what we create, and, often, what we wear. Just as the craft of cultivating yak wool has been passed down for generations, so have the durable sweaters the wool constructs.

We made our newest sweaters from 100% yak down from the Tibetan highlands; they are the thickest, warmest, and most luxurious sweaters we've ever made. The wool we knit is solely sourced from Shokay, a fully traceable Tibetan COOP formed by Harvard grad Carol Chyau.

Our new Heritage Yak Wool Sweater promotes 4,000 traditional herding families in Tibet and has heirloom quality that you'll pass down for generations.

100% Yak Wool Sweaters

Crafted from 100% yak down originating in the Tibetan highlands, traceable to the family that produced the fiber.

We aimed to create a sweater that kept us warm on the coldest winter days; a thick, strong wool sweater that didn't itch. We 3D-knit each sweater in a textured garter stitch about 2x the weight of our All-Season Sweaters.

This year we were only able to get our hands on enough yarn to produce roughly 60 sweaters, or about 15 sweaters in each of our 4 timeless colors.

100% Tibetan Yak Wool From Shokay

The only yak wool where a portion of revenue goes back to Tibetan community development and grassland conservation.

60

Yaks are an asset for families and represent much of their wealth. Each family, on average, herds 60 yaks. Some families herd up to 300 yaks. 

1,000

Shokay's women empowerment cooperative has provided a stable income for 50+ Tibetan women and produced 1,000kg of yak down yarn

800

800+ herders have benefitted from Shokay's health care programs, which include health care training, free clinic, and free eyeglasses.

1,600

In 2022, Shokay regenerated 30 football fields worth of grassland. Shokay has restored 1,600 football fields of grassland in the last decade.
