STATIC Static Yak pullover
Yak is a primitive beef animal that originated in Tibet, unlike a sheep that has repeatedly improved the breed since the Industrial Revolution. Throughout the year, it lives in the Takayama grasslands at an altitude of 3,000m to 6,000m, including Tibet and Nepal, and is active in the lower edge of the snow line in winter.
Yak is said to be a kind of cold -resistant species. The hair grows when the winter approaches to spend a long winter, and it comes out in the spring. This is a high -quality raw material that the nomads pick up and wash them.
Recently, it has been carefully combed with a comb with human hands, just like cashmere. This method is ethically good because it does not cut the hair of the whole body, unlike the sheep, and does not need mules ( *).
How to maintain wool quality. Yak's hair can be collected every year, but it is only about 100g to 300g from one adult yak. Wool is about 4 kg, so it can be said that it is very rare. The Tibetan yak hair used by Static is collected from one to 100g. We do not forcibly take a lot, and limit the collection so that yaks are not stressed.
