In general wools comfort comes from its thermo-balance characteristics. The breathability factor of a material depends on its ability to absorb moisture relative to its weight and then RELEASE IT INTO THE AIR. Wool can absorb 30% of its moisture – GREATER THAN COTTON (25%) and far great than polyester which can absorb only 1% of its weight. Cashmere is known in the textile industry as one of the softness wools with with a fiber diameter of less than 18.5. The diameter of the down fiber of the yak also ranges 16-20 microns, making its softness comparable to that of cashmere. Although cashmere has been firmly established on the market- yak wool has potential to be sold as a luxury product due to its softness and sustainable, eco friendly means used for gathering the fibers.
