Yak wool evolved over millennia as protection from the extreme Himalayan climate.
We've spent years transforming this astonishing fibre into a range of technical fabrics
for outdoor adventurers, through our in-house development programme Hima-Layer™.
Our ShoLa hat is made from Hima-Layer Original 230 fabric, using yak wool sourced from nomad families on the Qinghai Tibet plateau in the Himalayas.
- Even better than merino. It’s 66% more breathable and 40% warmer, weight for weight.
- Wicks moisture efficiently and allows sweat vapour to escape from your skin, so you won’t overheat or feel clammy.
- Built-in, 40+ UPF protects your scalp.
- Feels soft like cashmere - and there’s no itch.
- Naturally odour-resistant, so it will smell fresh for longer.
- Ideal for outdoor adventures in autumn, winter and spring.
