Little brother of MONGOLIA 5 prêt-à-teindre, the MONGOLIA 3 prêt-à-teindre ("ready-to-dye") yarn is a delicate blend of yak down and merino sheep fleece. Yak down is harvested by breeders in Mongolia, members of 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.

Merino wool is unbleached white while the yak down used is naturally brown. The result is a mottled yarn with incredible reflections, which will react to the dye while retaining this mottled aspect. This 3-ply yarn, in addition to its exceptional color and feel, is particularly warm and soft; it is knitted with # 4 needles.

The MONGOLIA 3 prêt-à-teindre yarn also exists in a dyed version, in a 50g ball, in the range MONGOLIA 3.

It is recommended to wash MONGOLIA 3 prêt-à-teindre by hand, if possible with organic natural soap, without spinning, and to dry it flat. Like all yak fibers, it has the particularity of softening with successive washes.

The 100g yarn skein of MONGOLIA 3 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.
