Myak Tibetan Cloud
Tibetan Cloud is a Sport/ Light DK weight of 100% Tibetan sheep wool, ethically sourced and traceable back to the flock. It comes exclusively from an ancient breed of Tibetan sheep that roam freely on the grassland of the Tibetan Plateau at an altitude of over 4000 mt.
This unique product has characteristics closer to fine fibers like cashmere and baby yak than to wool, not at all scratchy. It is a pleasure to knit with as it is to wear. As an added bonus, it has a beautiful stitch definition.
Out of deep respect for animal welfare, nomads shear the sheep by hand in the traditional way that has been used for centuries. The wool is collected following the natural life rhythms of the animals and the people who raise them. The Tibetan sheep are a very strong breed that has adapted to pretty rough environmental conditions. They can also be found in semi – desertic area and one of these poorer areas has been chosen for the sourcing of this collection, to bring a better income to these communities.
