The GENGIS KHAN 2 prêt-à-teindre ("ready-to-dye") yarn is made exclusively from yak down originating from the "Khangai Mountains Breeders Cooperative", an eco-responsible and fair trade local organisation set up by Fonty in Mongolia with the technical support of AVSF (Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders). The yaks are combed in the spring by Mongolian herders, and after sorting, a little less than 100g of down per animal and per year are harvested and transformed into yarn by Fonty.

This 2-ply yarn, very fine, in addition to its exceptional colors and touch, is particularly warm; entirely natural, and without any chemical treatment, it exists in 3 colors (grey, brown, dark brown) which are the 3 colors of yaks' fleeces. For dyeing, only natural gray is offered.

GENGIS KHAN 2 prêt-à-teindre is knitted with needles # 2 to 2.5. It is washed by hand, and has the particularity of softening with successive washes. This yarn also exists in the form of a 25g ball in the GENGIS KHAN 2 range, but also, in skein form of 100g "prêt-à-teindre" in three strands (GENGIS KHAN 3 prêt-à-teindre). Yarns URGA prêt-à-teindre, MONGOLIA 3 prêt-à-teindre and MONGOLIA 5 prêt-à-teindre are cousins of GENGIS KHAN 2 prêt-à-teindre yarns, which are based on yak down blends, and merino sheep wool.

The 100g yarn skein of GENGIS KHAN 2 prêt-à-teindre is proposed non-degreased, non-softened, non-vaporized. If you would like those processings to be carried out in addition, please contact us.
