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 molting, but it is advisable to choose the right time for combing, in the order of neck, back, thighs and belly.

Noble 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.

Camels that are up to three years old, on the other hand, are known as baby camels. Their wool is very flexible and extremely soft, but the flock is shorter, so it should be sorted separately and the quality level of knitwear and textiles is no less high than that of cashmere products. On average, 1-3 year old camels can produce 2400–4500 grams of wool, while adult camels can produce 4600–8000 grams of wool annually.

Mongolian sheep are a breed of domestic sheep native to the Mongolian plateau in Asia. The scientific name is Ovis aries, where Ovis is the generic name for sheep and Aries is the species name, which means “ram” in Latin. Mongolian sheep are known for their high-quality wool, which is soft, durable, and warm. The wool fibers of Mongolian sheep are generally finer and softer than those of many other sheep breeds. The fibers have a diameter of 15 to 25 micrometers and are also elastic, meaning they can stretch and return to their original shape.
