Spotlight on Yak Wool and Cashmere Sweaters- Mongolian Handicrafts Review

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's already June 2020? I can't! But this can only mean one thing- summer is flying past quickly and soon it would be time to take out those winter clothing and prepare for the cooler months. I'm so excited to share with you my new favourite brand and introduce you to somewhere you can get the best yak wool and cashmere sweaters in the world.

A bit about the brand- Mongolian Handicrafts is an Etsy shop that sells totally natural, sustainable and gorgeous sweaters and knits for men and women. The founders wanted to create clothing that is inspired by nature, using totally natural and pure materials to make lovely clothing that are warm, durable and fabulous. The shop works with the Mongolian nomads to ensure all trade they carry out is fair. Not only is the wool ecologically friendly but it can also increase the income of the herder families.

I want to talk about this gorgeous cashmere sweater that I got from Mongolian Handicrafts which keeps me warm during my evenings. It is totally gorgeous and a true tribute to the meticulous and detailed handicrafts from this brand. Take a look below at this amazing sweater!

As you can see, this sweater's quality and design is fantastic. In terms of the quality, the sweater is thin, lightweight but super warm as it is made from a light cashmere material. The cashmere is totally natural and feels extra soft on the skin. The threads and everything are sewn really well, and this sweater would last me for years to come. I also really love the light grey colour of this jumper as it pairs well with anything, including my white shorts, a skirt and jeans. It's extremely versatile as well as fashionable!

Mongolian Handicraft actually specialises in a variety of yak wool clothing, which is something I want to highlight in this review.

Benefits of yak wool versus cashmere

As yaks live in high altitudes in very cold climates, their wool needs to be able to withstand the cold harsh winters where temperatures could reach -50 degrees celsius. As such, Mongolian yak wool contains unique properties such as a high ability to insulate the body as well as a super soft, ultra luxurious touch.

These days, yak wool is becoming the warmest trend among brands that value sustainability as much as style. It is also environmentally friendlier than cashmere because cashmere comes from goats that live in small, cramped areas. Their heavy hooves trample the soil under their feet, and this means that the land that they're on is over-grazed and has led to the desertification of many regions. Yaks, on the other hand, have a softer footstep, which means that none of the land that they live on will be deserted.

Even the toughest yak wool is similar to cashmere meaning that it's soft, warm and easy to clean. In fact, it is even easier to clean than cashmere, as well as more durable and soft. This is because there's more amino acids in the fibres. This little-known material is literally a hidden gem, because it's easy to clean, odour-resistant, anti-microbial, stylish and totally warmer than cashmere.

Overall, I'm really impressed with this beautiful sweater from Mongolian Handicrafts. Their quality is fantastic, and the material feels excellent on the skin. It's one of the best sweaters that I've ever owned, and I truly think that the brand's ethos and mission will make them one of the best brands on the market.
