Description

The GENGIS KHAN 2 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, and in 2 ground versions, combining 2 by 2 these 3 colors. GENGIS KHAN 2 is knitted with needles # 2 to 2.5. It is washed by hand, and has the particularity of softening with successive washes. This thread also exists in one strand (GENGIS KHAN 1) and three strands (GENGIS KHAN 3). URGA, MONGOLIA 3 and MONGOLIA 5 are cousins of GENGIS KHAN 2 yarns, which are based on mixtures of yak down and merino sheep wool.

GENGIS KHAN 2 is also available as 100g undyed, untreated, not degreased, ready-to-dye skeins within the yarn quality GENGIS KHAN 2 prêt-à-teindre.
