About us

Mongolian Cashmere is well known for its high quality and finer fiber, yet we found another natural fiber that is more durable and better concentrated: YAK WOOL

We decided to launch YAKMERE when we learned processing yak wool is all natural and environmentally better alternative than sourcing from goats or sheep

So, we want to let people know that yak wool is as luxurious and soft as merino wool, and even more durable and warmer than cashmere.

In October 2018, we tested the idea through Kickstarter and received overwhelming support and reorders.

Who we are:

We are a sustainable nomadic brand born with the incredible support of Kickstarters last year here. Since then we tested and added new categories to our products such as knitting yarns and home items

Yak wool is luxurious natural fiber that is becoming known as the eco-friendly alternative to cashmere in the high fashion industry. Yakmere is offering 100% un-dyed organic yak yarns and knitwear that is soft, warm, long lasting and comes from free roaming Mongolian yaks.

How we make everyone and every animal involved HAPPIER:

• Yaks are happy:

Yaks shed wool every spring/summer. Yaks are healthier when their wool is combed out. They also feel much fresher and cooler for the summer if herders comb out their wool in time for summer.

• Herders are happy:

Previously yak herders were not able sell their yak wool so it turned into waste which is such pity. No longer waste! We are buying yak wool direct from local herders. We hope yak wool will become in-demand fiber similar to cashmere and provide even more income source to yak herders soon.

Factory is a happy place:

We partner with two local factories that specializes in yak down processing and garments productions.

From raw to washed and now spinning - soft soft wool!
