Snow Mountain Series Yarn

Our Snow Mountain Series yarn is made from the same beautiful 100% Tibetan yak down as our exquisite Traditional Series hand-spun yarn. This soft yarn is warmer than wool but doesn't itch like wool. Because this yarn is machine-spun rather than hand-spun it has a consistent gauge that can be helpful for new knitters and larger projects. The variety of colors and lower price in comparison to our more exclusive hand-spun yarn makes this yarn a great alternative.

Your purchase of this yarn helps support rural Tibetan women living on the Tibetan plateau.


This yarn is only available in Light weight (approx. 210 yards/100g).  See our gauge chart for more details or learn how to convert between yarn weights for your new knitting project.


Available colors include cream, black, burgundy, grey, purple, medium blue, and indigo blue (naturally-dyed). Besides looking great on its own, the cream color gives you the option of dyeing your own yarn.
