You really must experience luxurious Tibetan yak – it is exquisite! As soft as cashmere, warmer than merino.

A Company with a Purpose:

Reywa Fibers reinvests their profits back into the Tibetan communities. The yak down for Reywa’s yarns is sourced from Tibetan communities across the Tibetan Plateau. Their roots are in non-profit community development, including educational sponsorship for children of impoverished families, and helping small village schools improve their resources.

The grazinglands of Tibet are undergoing a disastrous process of desertification. If left unchecked, destruction of the grasslands will destroy the nomadic lifestyle, causing countless families to go hungry as their herds of yaks starve. The founders of Reywa Fibers have partnered with nomad communities to replant large areas of grass, training the nomads in preservation with good success. Many of the previously barren lands have begun to sprout and grow again.

  1. Both Ocean and Sacred Lake are beautiful. I have some Reywa yarn in deep stash, thanks for the reminder to dig it out!

  2. Dang—I accidentally hit post before I was finished!!
    Guess I’m a “Water” baby when it comes to naming colors—love the sacred lake and ocean. Thank you for your generosity and adding some fun to the holiday season. Merry Christmas to you!

  3. Embrace is my choice! I’m trying to expand my wardrobe colors past all the blues.
    Also, the very dark colors have become problematic for my eyes when knitting.
