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 meters.
Used for centuries to weave magnificent rugs, and traditional clothing, this wool was considered unsuitable for more refined uses. Until now...
Thanks to a careful selecting and dehairing process, Tibetan Cloud is the result of using the finest and softest heart of that wool, creating a yarn that is exceptionally light, bouncy and soft – floating across your hands like a cloud that floats across the Tibetan sky.
This unique product has characteristics closer to those of fine fibers like cashmere and baby yak than to wool - not at all scratchy.
