Did you know that Cashmere production is creating huge environmental problems in Asia which are in turn negatively affecting the global climate?
My Beyul is my response to this problem - a yarn with many of the same luxurious properties as Cashmere but none of the nasty consequences. In huge contrast to Cashmere goats, Yaks have a minimal impact on sparse grassland and every single facet of the yak is used for survival making them and their fleece extremely environmental.
All of the Merino I use is sourced from Peru from ethical farms that don't use mulesing on their sheep. Hand-combed or plucked, this short fibre sits between the most luxurious fine Cashmere and softest baby Camel in micron thickness and has a similar butter-soft handle and gloriously gentle halo… however - it has the added benefit of pilling less than either fibre.
Yak is durable, breathable, lightweight and its incredible thermal properties keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
