Made from delicate hair
Yak hair protects the animal's body from the extreme cold of the plateaus which can reach temperatures of negative 20℃, and serves as an excellent apparel material that can keep the body warm while remaining stretchy.
Putting yak hair into full use
The thin and delicate hair of yaks is used to produce high gauge knitwear. Slightly thicker hair that is separated by combing is used for middle gauge knitwear.
These products make the most from the gifts of nature without wastage by using appropriate knitting methods based on the thickness of different yak hair.

Using natural colours as they are
Among all colours available, dark mocha brown items are made directly using the original colour of natural yak hair. Items in other colours are made through dyeing process, while retaining most of its underlying original colour.
This allows features of natural materials to be shown in their original form, and echoes to the core principles of MUJI's product development.
A smooth finish
A blend of delicate downy hair of yaks with shiny merino wool of similar fiber thickness brings a smooth texture.
