|Baby yaks are born in early Spring. By mid-March, they can be seen toddling behind their mothers, and by June, the yeko, as they are called, are clustered together into play groups, running and hopping across the grassland. A yeko is born with a soft layer of down, which it keeps into its second year. After it has passed its first winter, the warming air loosens this down, which molts and falls. This molt is the yak’s finest fiber, sought by Norlha in our quest for the best. We transform the baby yak’s discarded gem the into a treasure for our babies, most in need of warmth and protection, and it becomes soft, cozy, lasting and washable blankets, hats and booties.
