Yak and camel wool

The Mongolians are noted for the beautiful cashmere clothing available. The fine cashmere wool comes from goats but yak and camel hair is also used to make clothing and blankets. The scarf above is 50% yak and 50% baby camel wool. Not as light as cashmere but just as soft to the touch.
The shop named Mary and Martha have a large range of items in yak and camel. These colours are all natural from the animals and I really like how they have combined them.
