traceable and quality yarn
Yak and Baby Camel down fiber is spun in one of the last spinning and dyeing factories in France. This is the FONTY spinning mill, created in 1880.
In spring, the Yaks are combed by Mongolian farmers, then, after sorting, just under 100 grams of down per animal per year are harvested and processed into yarn.
The Khangai Mountain Yak Herders’ Cooperative for the production of combed fibre was established in 2004.
AVSF supports Mongolian nomadic herders to preserve their culture and traditional way of life.
