Yak And Merino Wool Fiber Characteristics - Make The Most Of
Wool from sheep can be strong or soft, silky or coarse and shiny or matte. It's all dependent on what breed of sheep it's. Merino wool is usually thought of as the softest sheep wool. That defining softness can be attributed to the fineness of the individual fibers: about 18-24 microns in size. The diameter of cashmere fibers is of around 11-12 microns and wool is made from Romney sheep is a diameter between 29 and 36 microns. Merino wool is a great choice to knit projects. Merino wool is also a good source of warmth, strength as well as elasticity, moderate shine and easy feelability. This is a comprehensive list of the fibers that are used in knitting yarns.

Characteristics of Fibers
Softness: This is a valuable feature when it comes down to cool-weather garments.
The term "strength" refers to the ability to resist pull force (or tension forces).
Luster: Does your hair shine? Lustrous fibers (silk and adult mohair) usually dye brilliantly.
Elasticity: Does the knitted fabric return to its original shape after it has been stretched out? What is the average strength of pull?
How does it hang? Does it flow?
Halo: Some yarns emit glowing fibers that are not in the same yarn.
Feltability: As agitation increases and changes in water temperature knitted fabrics may be stiff, and at times the stitches become hidden. Different fibers shrink in different ways when felted.

Thermal Properties Of Yak And Merino Wool
Yak and merino wool base layer fabrics are the pinnacle of base layers. The base layer of our collection is made with merino and yak wool and they combine these natural characteristics with merino for all-day comfort, warmth and breathability. To offer outdoor lovers new levels of comfort, we created the first technical yak wool fabrics. These fabrics offer superior warmth when you need it, as well as temperature control that prevents overheating, natural control of moisture and heat. High altitude is the main ingredient to the warmth that yak wool provides. This tough animal has developed their super-wool to be able to withstand the winter cold at altitudes of 4,000-6000 meters.

The ideal base layer: 60% premium Yak wool and 40% supersoft Merino. These are a high rated thermals for men blend.

Other Fibers To Consider
Highland wool is usually obtained from Corriedale sheep and is usually grown in Peru. Although it's not as soft as merino, it's still as soft than the merino. It's also warmer than merino.
Double-coated animals may have delicate undercoats such as baby camel , cashmere or yak down. They are very warm, soft and flexible. They drape better than merino wool. They give knitted and yarn fabrics a slight shimmer. These fibers can come in natural grays and browns (as much as white) which means they can reduce the color of dyed yarns.

Mulberry silk is also referred to as bombyx silk or tussah. The fibers come from the cocoons of silk producing moths. Mulberry silk, which is also referred to as bombyx silk is extremely white. Tussah silk is a light golden brown. Both silks can be strong and beautiful. They're also extremely comfortable. Silk feels cool in hot weather, warm in colder weather. Silks drape beautifully due to their nebulous elasticity.

Mohair, which is a fiber that originates from Angora Angora Goats, is called the fiber. The properties of mohair depend on the animal's age. First and second clips are for kid mohair. It is softest and has the highest shine. But, it's not elastic and does not drape well. The fourth and third clips are made for yearling mohair. It may appear similar to kid mohair, however, it's stronger and more beautiful. Adult mohair, which is made from goats who are older than 2 years, is durable shining, glossy, extremely shiny, doesn't feel and drapes beautifully. No matter how old, mohair is a wonderfully warm fiber.

Nylon is a synthetic polymer that is often added to wool yarns in order to enhance the strength -- and, in turn the endurance of the yarn and the knitted item. It is a synthetic polymer that has some elastic properties. But, it isn't able to retain moisture as well as wool.

Superwash Merino. Scales are put on wool fibers to make them stick together. This allows wool yarns with low twists to spin. It also allows for the creation of some wool yarns which are soft and supple. A superwash wool is one which has either removed or covered the wool fibers with scales. Superwash wools require a little more twist so that knitted fabrics have less elasticity. Superwash wools will not feel and can be machine washed. Superwash wools are often made of nylon, which provides durability and easy cleaning.

Alpaca (huacaya or suri) gives warmth to knitted fabric and also softens it. It feels the same as merino wool, if it is not better.
Angora (from Angora bunnies) is incredibly soft. It has a distinct halo and feels great.
Cotton is trendy and has very little elasticity. Merino-cotton, merino and merino-cotton some of my favourite sweaters. These yarns work equally well for spring and fall clothes.

How To Pick The Right Thermal Clothes
Whether you're looking for the best ski base layer or For any outdoor pursuit at altitude for any outdoor activity, the thermal mixture of merino and yak fibers is the most suitable. Here are some tips for selecting the appropriate thermals for women or men..

1. Ensure They Don't Restrict Your Movement
While thermal clothing should be skin-fitted against the body, they should not restrict movement. Thermals can help you improve your performance by keeping your body warm and protecting it from cold.

2. Check For Smoothness
If you buy thermals, whether for women or men, make sure that the fabric is smooth to the feel and has flat, well-crafted seams. This will prevent you from making an error. Fabric that is rougher, zip edges and bulky seams will create friction and rub the body causing irritation and abrasions. A minor irritation could cause you to lose your day.

3. Pick The Right Fabric
It is possible to learn about the differences between natural and artificial fibres. Also, find out how heat transfer happens across different materials. We recommend wool for its ability to wick moisture and ability to keep your skin dry when layering fabrics. Being dry can aid in maintaining your body temperature for longer. It is better to be dry rather than wet. Wool also has wonderful and natural no-stink qualities meaning that you can wear your gear for longer without needing to wash it... which is a plus when you're climbing the mountain for several days.
