Issue #10, 2023 ISSN: 2581- 9410The yaks on the Changthang Plateau in Eastern Ladakh live in altitudes between 4,000 and 5,000 m and therefore, need to have a very warm coat to keep warm during the cold winter months with temperatures up to -40 C degrees. They have a three-layer coat. On the very outside, the hair covering the yak is used for making tents and ropes. The mid-layer is a bit thinner however too rough to use as a fine wool. The wool closest to the body is the finest and used for garments. It is called ‘khullu’ and keeps warm, is odor-resistant as it absorbs moisture easily and releases it into the air.Each year in the summer, we source yak wool from the nomad community in Kharnak.In Ladakh, the yak appears in 3 different colors: dark brown which is the most common, beige which is less common and the rarest, the white yak, its wool can sometimes have a tint of grey, too.
