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.
Without doubt the best active top I have ever used, and I have used a lot. Had my set; zip, crew, leggings, hat etc etc for nearly two years. They have been virtually the only base layers on month long trips to Antarctica, Svalbard, Greenland, Japan and have performed brilliantly. This with continual blasts in Wales and Scotland. They particularly excel when the weather is at its most inclement and I do not mean just ice cold. They have a wide ambient temperature comfort range. Curiously the Zip is also to be seen no where near the mountains as a general smart top. Great products. You really get what you pay for.
