The “Otherways” products are made in Tibetan yak and Mongolian camel wools.
Wild or more often domestic yaks live at high-altitude above 3000 meters in the Tibetan mountains, on the borders of the Himalayas. Their wool is made up of a slight down that the nomads call “khullu”. Its properties are comparable to those of cashmere. Warm and soft, these finest fibers do not cause any irritation, like that of the Mongolian camel.
The Mongolian camel is one of the most valuable species in the Gobi Desert. The promotion of its wool contributes to its protection.
The yaks naturally shed their hair in the spring and the camel fleece recovery is done by mowing.
The “Otherways” products consist of rare raw materials which are collected without pain.
