Yak

The yak is one of the cattle that have successfully adapted to the harsh climate and difficult living conditions in the high mountains. There are officially over 5 million cattle in Mongolia, of which around 600,000 are yaks. About half of the yaks live in regions above 2,000 meters and around 40% inhabit areas between 1,500 and 2,000 meters. Yaks can use water and grazing areas that are not suitable for other domestic animals, but they are just as efficient economically as other domestic animals. The Mongols have used yaks since ancient times for milk, meat, skin and fur. Yak down used to be prepared by shearing, but thanks to the increase in the value of yak down, herders use the same goat combing method to prepare yak down. The schedule for combing yak down varies from year to year, but it is believed that April is the best time for combing. On average, up to 400-750 grams of yak down can be combed from one yak when the yak is moulting, but it is advisable to choose the right time for combing, in the order of neck, back, thighs and belly.

Dehaired yak down: Average length: 33 - 38 mm, Dehair content: 30 - 40%, Dirt content: 0.3%, Micron: 18.4 - 23.6 microns, Moisture content: 15 ± 1%, Oil: 0.8%
