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.

The Hima-Layer Difference

warm

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.

soft

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.

breathable

Thanks to yak wool’s hollow shape, and the inherent strength of the fibre, we are able to knit fabrics looser while maintaining the fabric’s durability. Air and water vapour escapes more easily between the knits, allowing the body to breathe more efficiently.

Product Description
Product Design

We found yak to be equal to merino wool in wicking performance and odour resistance, but better for temperature regulation

This midweight top is worth its price for its versatility from the mountains in summer to any activity from fall through spring

perfect for all winter and cold weather activities
