Yaks are unique animals that live throughout the highlands of the Himalaya Mountains and in parts of northern Asia. They are found primarily in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, India, Mongolia and Russia. Yaks thrive in high altitude areas above 3000 meters (10,000 feet) where temperatures can easily plummet to -35°C (-31°F). Yaks survive these harsh conditions by the thick wool that covers their bodies. Nomad Tibetans have been using this type of yak wool to make their tents and blankets for over 1000 years. Yak wool is the perfect material for making clothing to keep you warm in the harshest and most extreme regions of our planet.
