The resources provided by yaks are used extensively for various purposes, such as using its meat as food, its milk as a drink, its stools as a source of fuel, its horns as medicine, all of which deeply rooted in the locals' way of life.
Made from delicate hair
The coat hair of a yak protects the animal's body from the extreme cold of the plateaus which can reach temperatures of -20℃, and serves as an excellent material that has both heat retention properties and elasticity.
The hair of yaks is not sheared but manually collected by hand according to the timing of the natural growth of new hair.
Using yak hair without waste
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 of the gifts of nature without waste by employing the knitting method that best suits the thickness of yak hair.

Using natural colours as they are
From the product colours available, Dark Mocha Brown items are made using the original colour of natural yak hair. Items of other colours are made by dying natural yak hair in a way that makes the most of its underlying original colour.
These products allow the colours and warmth of animals that thrive amidst nature to be shared with others in their original form. This is one of the core aims that guide MUJI's creation of new products.
Achieving a smooth finish
By blending the delicate downy hair of yaks with shiny merino wool of similar fiber thickness, a material with a smooth texture is created.
You can experience the comfort of wearing knitwear that feels great on your skin.
