The yak wool’s warmth and ability to endure day-after-day wear with fluctuating temperatures makes it a must. It also remains a fabric that is my base layer on most days just ‘living’ here in Shangri-La.
Our unique yak wool fabrics development programme
The Hima-Layer Difference
Yaks live comfortably at 16,000 feet in the freezing-cold Himalayas—kept warm by their natural coat of wool. The secret to yak wool’s incredible warmth-for-weight is that the fibre is hollow, trapping more air next to the body. This is why Kora’s Hima-Layer Original 230 fabric is warmer, weight-for-weight, than traditional merino fabrics - up to 40% warmer. Move aside, Sheep.
Yak wool is softer than soft—making it the ideal baselayer and midlayer material. Aside from our unique performance fabrics, yak wool more frequently used as an alternative to cashmere. Whether you’re embarking on a long, challenging day in the mountains, cruising the streets, or lounging at home, Kora’s Hima-Layer fabrics offer supreme comfort.
I enjoy comfort in the kind of places that people are least likely to have "comfort." And the quality structure in both material and design is why I would proudly and adamantly recommend this product that has achieved perfection in keeping a person warm and also comfortable in the coldest conditions, but also relevant in common temperate conditions as well. I congratulate Kora's design, quality, and fit. And I look forward to having more products from Kora in the years to come.
Would like the leggings also matching the tops blue rather than just black. Doesn't really matter but would be a nice touch.
The best base layer for skiing.
