Reywa Embrace yarns are 100% yak down from fiber that is hand harvested by Tibetan nomads. Reywa takes this exquisite fiber and spins it into beautiful yarns for hand knitters and fiber artists. With an unforgettable buttery handle, the yarns are characterized by luxurious softness, superior warmth, naturally hypo-allergenic properties, extreme breathability and insulating properties, and natural water resistance.
Beyond the incredible natural properties of yak, Reywa Fiber’s 100% Tibetan Yak Down yarns come with an extraordinary story of community and environmental transformation. Reywa’s roots are in non-profit work on the Tibetan Plateau, and profits from the sale of their yarns is reinvested directly in educational sponsorship for children of impoverished families, and in grasslands restoration initiatives to reverse the process of desertification that threatens the traditional grazing-lands of the Tibetans’ herds.
