The Rocking Yak is committed to helping alleviate poverty among Tibetan families living in rural villages on the Tibetan plateau. Aiming to empower these families in their choice to live a more traditional lifestyle, they are bringing economic value to the Tibetan skills of rearing yak and spinning wool. We strive to provide these families with sustainable employment and a greater family income while instilling self-worth and pride in their unique culture. The Rocking Yak is working with rural Tibetan women to produce quality hand-spun yak down yarn and hand-knit garments.
The yak down yarn is beautifully soft and amazingly warm. It comes in both natural colours, undyed (ready to dye) and some vibrant naturally dyed colours for both hand spun and machine spun yarn in DK and a 10ply.
